Injury -Dental injury and its first aid

Dental Injury

A direct hit generally knocks out anterior teeth. If the teeth are hit but not knocked out, soft tissue damage is only minor. The teeth and mouth are sore. The tooth is not displaced. It may be loose and tender and there may be some gum damage.

First aid

1.Ask the victim to hold the tooth in its socket firmly using a towel.

2.Send him to a dentist immediately for re-implantation of the tooth.

3. If the tooth has totally fallen off and cannot be replaced, treat hemorrhage by pressing the bleeding socket with a wad of gauze
