When faced with dental emergency, time is of the essence

Posted on August 6th, 2012 No Comments

Due to the great increase in playtime children get during the summer, the season is often filled with many more oral injuries than the rest of the year.

When children injure their mouths, especially those who already have their permanent teeth, it is important to respond quickly to increase the chances that a dental professional will be able to successfully perform restorative procedures.

If a tooth is knocked out of a person’s mouth, it should be placed in the most neutral liquid you can find to keep it moist. Milk, water, and saliva work very well for this purpose. Getting to an emergency dental care facility within an hour will give a dentist  the best chance of successfully reimplanting the tooth.

If you are facing a dental emergency, contact the dental emergency experts of Bridgeview Dental at 512-347-8299.
