Children’s Dental Emergencies Cabramatta

Children are more vulnerable than adults to dental emergencies. They are less aware of the objects nearby that could harm them due to their casual attitude. It is consequently our responsibility as adults to look after their well-being.

However, we are flawed and powerless over everything. There will undoubtedly be moments when we fall short of shielding them from discomfort, particularly oral discomfort. You can get assistance from your partner at Cabramatta Dental Care when this occurs.

You can depend on your dentist in Cabramatta if your child suffers from a dental emergency.

Handling a Child’s Dental Emergency

A calm demeanour is essential while dealing with a child’s dental emergency. You want to relieve your child’s discomfort as soon as possible, and the most effective method is to deliver appropriate first aid measures quietly. Everything will be more accessible if you maintain control of the situation.

We have listed the most common children’s dental crises and first aid procedures to assist you.

Bitten Tongue or Lip

If your child bit their lip or tongue hard enough to cause bleeding, carefully wipe the injury with warm water and apply a cold compress firmly to the region to lessen or prevent swelling. If bleeding is present, gently press the area for ten minutes or until the flow stops.

Object Caught Between Teeth

  • Use dental floss to get anything lodged between your child’s teeth out.
  • Never attempt to free the trapped object with a metal, plastic, or sharp tool. Give us a call right away if dental floss is unable to remove the thing.

Broken, Chipped or Cracked Tooth

  • To lessen or prevent swelling in your kid’s face, place an ice pack on the afflicted area and have your child rinse their mouth with warm saltwater.
  • Find and save the broken piece of the tooth if you can.
  • Right away, visit the dentist.

Dental Pain/Toothache

  • Use lukewarm saltwater to rinse your child’s mouth. This helps to relieve pain and tenderness.
  • To reduce swelling and uncomfortable twinges, apply a cold compress.
  • Floss their teeth and check for any residual food residue.
  • Do not feed your child aspirin or apply aspirin to the afflicted tooth or gums. This can only lead to more complications.
  • Most importantly, schedule an appointment with your dentist.

Dislodged or Knocked-out Tooth

  • Give your youngster a warm saltwater mouth rinse. (Eight ounces of water with half a teaspoon of salt)
  • To minimise swelling, apply a cold compress.
  • Find and hold the tooth in place. Do not touch the root; instead, grasp it by the crown.
  • If the tooth is unclean, gently wash it for 10 seconds with lukewarm water; otherwise, let it alone.
  • Reinsert a permanent tooth by gently biting down on a fresh piece of fabric.
  • If it’s a baby tooth, don’t try to put it back in because doing so could harm the permanent tooth that is growing underneath.
  • Put the tooth in milk, salt water, or saliva to soak it.
  • Within 30 minutes following the injury, visit the dentist.

How do I know if it's a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies are any dental issues that require urgent medical intervention.

Dental crises include cracked teeth, shattered jaws, knocked-out teeth, excruciatingly painful infections, and profuse bleeding.

Additionally, children who participate in sports are more likely to suffer dental injuries such as tooth intrusion, root fractures, or the unexpected loss of teeth.

What to do to avoid a dental emergency?

Never allow your youngster to chew or bite on ice, popcorn kernels, or other hard foods or objects. Use cushions and locks to childproof the edges of your tables, drawers, and other areas prone to accidents. For younger children, use car seats; for older youngsters, seatbelts.
