What to do and Where to Go
So how do you know whether to go to the emergency room or to the dentist? Here are a few tips:
- If there has been a head trauma, do not hesitate: Go directly to the emergency room.
- Speak calmly to your child. If there is blood, do not overreact. Head and mouth injuries tend to bleed profusely. Staying calm helps your child stay calm as well.
- If a tooth is knocked out, do not handle it by the root. If your child will allow it, place the tooth back in the socket. If you can’t, put it under your tongue or in a glass of milk.
- Stop bleeding with a cold compress or clean gauze. If the bleeding does not stop within fifteen minutes, take your child to the emergency room.
And remember, even if you decide to head to the emergency room, call Beverly Hills Pediatric Dental Care in dental emergencies as soon as possible. We want to be informed of any and all mouth, face, or head injury in case of future issues.
