If your child's baby tooth gets knocked out, apply pressure to the area if there is
bleeding. Contact your child's dentist as soon as possible.
If your child's permanent tooth gets knocked out, if possible, locate the tooth and
rinse it in cold water. Place the tooth back into the socket, or area in the mouth,
where it came from and hold it there. If this can't be done, place the tooth in a
clean holder with milk, saliva, or water. Take your child to the dentist immediately.
There is a chance the tooth can be saved if treatment is immediate.
If your child chips a tooth, rinse your child's mouth with cold water. If your child's
lip has also been injured, put cold compresses on the area to help with the swelling.
If you can locate the piece of tooth, bring it to the dentist. Take your child to
the dentist as soon as possible. Immediate treatment can help prevent infection and
decrease the need for further dental work.
If your child has a toothache, rinse the mouth with cool water and apply a cool compress
to the child's face in the area of the toothache. Do not put heat or aspirin on the
sore area. Make an appointment with your child's dentist as soon as possible.
