Traumatic injuries to primary teeth and permanent teeth are managed differently. If your child has experienced a dental accident, get in touch with us immediately – we can help!

Primary teeth

It is important to keep in mind that there is a close relationship between the apex of the root of the injured primary tooth and the underlying permanent tooth germ. Alveolar bone tooth malformations and/or injuries to primary teeth can have a severe impact on the developing permanent dentition. To avoid damage to the permanent successors, it is important to conduct a detailed clinical assessment including a radiographic examination. Toothbeary recommends to have your child’s teeth checked as soon as possible after the accident.

IMPORTANT: Never reā€plant a baby tooth into the mouth!

Permanent teeth

Traumatic injuries to permanent teeth are very common and most often involve the upper front teeth.

The most frequent injuries are:

Fractures (broken teeth): If your child fractures her/his tooth we recommend to put the broken piece in saliva or milk and come and see us straight away, most often we can re-attach the piece to the remaining tooth.

Luxation (loosened or displaced teeth): If your child’s tooth is loose or displaced after an accident, then please see a dentist as soon as possible. It is important to re-position and stabilize the tooth to prevent further damage to the supporting structures.

Avulsion (complete loss of the tooth): If the complete tooth has fallen out, then time is of paramount importance! Within the first 5 minutes you can replant the tooth into the socket, but please ensure you don’t touch the root of the tooth. If this is not possible, place the tooth into saliva or milk and as before do not touch the root. In any case your child needs to see the dentist immediately!
