As a guide for dental trauma, Children’s Dentistry of Texas stresses the importance of wearing a mouth guard when playing contact sports. When a child has chipped or broken teeth, locate the broken fragment, gently rinse the child’s mouth with water and apply cold compress to the area. Then, contact a pediatric dentist.

For a knocked out baby tooth, contact a pediatric dentist immediately. Gently rinse the child’s mouth with water and apply cold compress to reduce swelling. Do not replant baby teeth, as it may damage the developing permanent tooth.

For a knocked out permanent tooth, gently rinse the tooth and contact a pediatric dentist immediately. Place the tooth back in its socket or in a container of milk or the child’s saliva and bring to the pediatric dentist. Immediate action may save the tooth.
