Dental Injuries in Children

dental injuries in children

Dental injuries started to increase with the coming of summer. With this said, dental injuries in children are also on the rise.

Taking advantage of the closing of schools and the warming of the weather, children took their breath in the sea, parks, pools and gardens. With the increase in movement during this period, falls and unfortunately, injuries to the teeth are also increasing.

Dental injuries that occur as a result of accidents such as falls and bumps can have consequences that will significantly affect the child’s future life depending on the severity of the injury.

In cases where teeth are damaged in children, intervention without losing time is one of the most important factors for the treatment to be successful. For this reason, regardless of the cause and severity, in accidents where such injuries occur, the adults who are with the child should act both calmly and consciously and quickly, and should consult a pediatric dentist or dentist immediately.

In case of dental injuries in children, the upper front teeth are most commonly affected. If the teeth are fractured as a result of an accident, a broken piece should be searched for in the area where the injury occurred. It should not be forgotten that the broken piece can be used to repair the tooth.

One of the most serious situations encountered in dental injuries is the complete dislocation of the tooth that the child will use for the rest of his/her life. In such a case, first of all, it is important to remain calm and find the dislodged tooth. Then, urgent consultation with a pediatric dentist will ensure that a tooth that will be used for a lifetime is not lost.

If it will take a long time to reach the dentist from the place where the accident occurred, rinsing the dislodged tooth with clean water and gently placing it back into place by grabbing the dislodged tooth not from the root but from the cutting part seen in the mouth can be applied as an emergency treatment method. However, even if this is done, access to a dentist should be ensured as soon as possible.

Finally, accurate diagnosis is crucial for the successful treatment of traumatized teeth and surrounding tissues. For this reason, information about where and when the accident occurred, the way it occurred, whether the child has any injuries other than dental injuries after the accident and whether the child has received treatment related to these injuries should be conveyed to the dentist for treatment in the most accurate way.
