Teeth Injuries Injuries to the teeth in children can occur from falls or during play or sports activities. The injury may be to a primary ("baby") tooth or a permanent tooth.
Tooth Injuries & Children Tooth injuries in children may include damage to teeth as a result of falls, accidents and other mishaps. These injuries can cause teeth to become chipped, cracked, partially displaced or completely dislodged from the socket in the mouth.
Dental Injuries Dental trauma occurs when the tooth receives a blow. Teeth can be broken, loosened or knocked out completely. Immediate treatment gives the best possible chance of saving the tooth.
First Aid - Tooth Trauma When a tooth is accidentally knocked out, appropriate emergency medical care is necessary. Permanent teeth that are knocked out sometimes can be re-implanted, but only if you act quickly.
