If your child has suffered trauma to their teeth or mouth, it’s important you call us right away. The quicker we see your child, the more chance we have of saving their teeth and avoiding any major surgery or treatments.
After you’ve called us there are some things you can do to help the situation, including:
Obviously, prevention is the best way to avoid trauma so if your child plays contact sports, like football or rugby, or even a non-contact sport where there is a chance of trauma you should make sure they wear a mouthguard.
Never use mouthguards that you buy off the shelf, a professionally fitted mouthguard will offer far better protection than one you get from a store.
Despite your best efforts kids can get themselves, and their teeth, into trouble. Accidents are a natural part of growing up and you should rest easy in the knowledge that if something does go wrong we’ll be on hand to make it right.
No matter what happens to your child’s tooth – if they lose one or two teeth, crack it a little bit or chip it in half – we can fix it and save your child’s smile.
Just remember the tips we gave you above and also remember to contact us as quickly as you possibly can. Our friendly team will do everything they can to book you in for an appointment.
