Chipped or Broken Teeth
If your child’s baby tooth or permanent tooth gets knocked out, contact your pediatric dentist as soon as possible. Quick action can save the tooth, prevent infection and reduce the need for extensive dental treatment. Rinse the mouth with water and apply cold compresses to reduce swelling if the lip also was injured. If you can find the broken tooth fragment, place it in cold milk or water and bring it with you to the dental office.
