Back to School Dental First Aid Tips:

Paula Palmer from Access Dental NZ Ltd

It's that time of year again when we start to prepare for the beginning of a school year and after-school activities. When accidents happen, teeth can sometimes be completely knocked out. Many teeth can be replaced after being knocked out and some will survive very well after this.

The longer the tooth is out of the socket the poorer the chance it has of surviving long term.
First Aid for knocked out teeth :
• Replace the tooth into its socket as soon as possible. This can be done by another person or the injured person themselves.
• Hold the tooth by the crown, ensure that there is no dirt or debris on the root and wash briefly under water.
• Gently push the tooth back into its socket.
• Hold the tooth in place by biting gently on a piece of cloth and see your dentist immediately.

Access Dental (located next to Nelson Hospital) offer free dental care for Under 18's. If your teenager hasn't seen a dentist in a while book in now for a check up.
