One of the most distressing situations for children and their families is when the child’s tooth is broken, partially or completely displaced due to dental trauma. In dental traumas, regardless of the shape and size of the trauma, a dentist, if possible a pedodontist should be consulted as soon as possible.
Usually, parents may not care much if there is no serious bleeding after a fall or injury.
However, it should not be forgotten that post-traumatic tooth loss is mostly seen in teeth with late intervention. Especially in dental traumas resulting in tooth dislocation and tooth fracture, the time between reaching the dentist from the moment of the incident and the way the broken tooth piece or tooth is brought plays a major role in the success of the treatment. In such a situation, the family should try to be as calm as possible and inform the physician about exactly when, how and where the accident occurred.
