If your child has a toothache, clean the area of the affected tooth thoroughly.
Rinse the mouth vigorously with warm water or use dental floss to dislodge impacted food or debris.
If the pain still exists, contact your child’s dentist. DO NOT place aspirin on the gum or on the aching tooth. If your child’s face is swollen, apply cold compresses and contact your dentist immediately.
If your child has a cut or bitten tongue, lip or cheek, apply ice to bruised areas. If there is bleeding, apply firm but gentle pressure with a gauze or cloth. If bleeding does not stop after 15 minutes or it cannot be controlled by simple pressure take the child to a hospital emergency room.
Knocked Out Permanent Tooth:
Find the tooth and only handle it by the crown, not the root portion. Do not rinse or clean or handle the tooth. Transport the tooth in a cup containing milk. The patient must see a dentist IMMEDIATELY! Time is a critical factor in saving the tooth.
