Dental emergencies are an unfortunate fact of life. Proper dental hygiene, good nutrition and a balanced lifestyle will minimise your risks of suffering a dental emergency, but sometimes things just go wrong.
A broken, fractured or displaced tooth is usually not a cause for alarm, as long as decisive, quick action is taken. Dental emergencies can be traumatic incidents, especially for children. A knocked out tooth or bitten tongue can cause panic in any parent, but quick thinking and staying calm are the best ways to approach such common dental emergencies and prevent additional unnecessary damage and costly dental restoration. As quickly as possible, starting using cold compresses to reduce swelling, and administer some painkillers like paracetamol or ibuprofen.
