Dental Emergencies

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This one-page handout educates people about what to do in the event of an oral injury resulting in a dental emergency. It provides simple steps and timelines that need to be kept in order to heal properly. It explains what to do if teeth have been knocked out (evulsed), forced out of position (extruded), or broken (fractured). The document describes the difference between minor, moderate, and severe fractures to the teeth, and outlines what to do in the event of injury to the soft tissues of the mouth, such as lips, gums, or cheeks.
