Teeth Fracture in Children

Broken Baby Teeth:

Trauma to baby teeth (primary teeth) can result in loosening or complete dislodging, bleeding from gum tissue, and bruises to lips. In most situations, traumatized baby teeth cannot be saved and require extraction to avoid infection. If a tooth suffers trauma and is not loose, it should be periodically evaluated by your dentist to make sure it remains vital. Often, such teeth develop infection months to years later and cause pain and swelling. If trauma involves adult teeth, they should be maintained as much as possible.


Broken Adult teeth:

If tooth is in pieces, save the broken portion and bring it to the dental office in water or milk
