Frequently Asked Questions

The Avenue Family Dentistry

Don’t worry; we have seen it all. We dentists are very familiar with children having their teeth hit, and there are several ways to handle the situation. You have to remember that a lot of blood is normal. The mouth is a very vascular area. The great news is that there is already a brand-new set of adult teeth that will replace these little teeth one day. No permanent damage has likely been done.

Comfort your child and clean up his little face while you get your dentist on the phone. Most dentists will be happy to see you very quickly after an incident, and he or she will be able to give you a good idea of what to expect as an outcome. A lot of times, there is no work to be done, but if something is needed, the sooner you get to a dentist, the better. If you do have the lost tooth, try to put it in a baggie filled with some of your child’s saliva or milk and bring it over with you.

 First, rinse the mouth with warm water. This will help to clean the area that was damaged. Apply a cold compress to the area to decrease swelling.   If the tooth fell out of your mouth, place the tooth back in the socket or if that is not possible place the tooth in a glass of milk.  Contact the office as soon as possible, we have an emergency line available and you can reach us at all times.

Do not kiss your infant on the mouth.  Babies are not born with the bacteria that causes cavities.  Adults unknowingly transfer that bacteria to them when doing things like sharing utensils and kissing them on the mouth. We also discourage sharing straws and cups with them.
