Dental trauma in children: consult your dentist!

A child who has suffered a shock to the teeth, including primary teeth (baby teeth), should consult a dentist. More than 51% of children under six years of age experience dental trauma caused by daily activities or during sports activities. Getting help quickly avoids complications.

In the case of a broken tooth, a dentist can put the pieces together if they have been picked up and preserved in a liquid. Otherwise, they can reconstitute it using a composite material. Even without visible lesions after a shock, the tooth’s root can be fractured. Due to the proximity of the permanent tooth’s germ, the adult tooth may not grow properly or disfigured. In order to preserve your child’s teeth, consult the dentist promptly.
