Not sure if you’ve suffered dental trauma? There’s a way to identify that. Besides seeing a professional (as soon as possible), there are some red flags that should let you know how bad it is. Keep an eye on any of the following issues: infants easily damage primary incisors when learning to walk; most commonly damaged tooth in an accident are the upper central incisors; most common injury sustained to baby teeth is intrusion (tooth is pushed into the gum); damage ranges from a fracture to the dental pulp to a small chip off the enamel. In the future, take proper precaution. That is, wear helmets or mouth guards during activity to keep those teeth safe from damage. If a permanent tooth is knocked out, don’t hesitate to: keep the injured person calm; wash the tooth briefly using milk, cold running water, or saline solution; seek out an emergency dental treatment facility. Our professionals at Georgetown Family Dental can treat that easily. If you or someone you know has suffered mild or severe dental trauma, don’t hesitate to contact our 31419 emergency dentist.
