Dental traumas, which are extremely worrying for both the family and the child, are seen in approximately 1/3 of all children.
Especially children between the ages of 1 and 3 often fall because they cannot balance yet while learning to walk.

The teeth most affected by these falls are the upper anterior incisors.
While mild bumps often cause injuries to soft tissues such as lips and gums, severe bumps can cause tooth shaking, fractures in the mouth or root of the tooth, and sometimes even completely dislocation of the tooth.

– What should I do in dental trauma?

In case of dental trauma, first of all, parents should be calm and apply what should be done without panic. First of all, the most important point to know is that regardless of the size of the trauma, you should definitely reach your dentist and exchange information. Even traumas that seem insignificant from the outside can cause tooth loss.

If the entire tooth is displaced, it should be washed under clean, running water, keeping the root of the tooth intact. The ideal environment for the falling tooth to be delivered to the dentist is in the mouth. However, we do not recommend this method because the child can easily swallow the tooth. If the falling tooth is not in milk, if possible, it should be delivered to the physician as soon as possible in clean water. When you deliver the tooth, your dentist will decide whether the tooth will be relocated or not, depending on whether the falling tooth is milk or permanent, the tooth pit and the tooth being affected by trauma.


• Contact your physician without wasting time.
• Wash the dislocated or broken tooth with clean running water without touching its root and deliver it to your doctor in milk.
• Do not shake the rocking tooth any more and seek medical advice immediately.
• Even if there is no visible problem in the teeth after trauma, definitely go to the dentist’s examination at an appropriate time. Traumas that are not visible from the outside but buried or damage the underlying permanent teeth can lead to tooth loss and tooth distortion in the long term.

According to the researches about the frequency of caries in recent years; It is observed that the frequency of caries in children reaches 90% both in the period of deciduous dentition (2-6 years old) and in the period of mixed dentition (7-12 years old). For this reason, it is of great importance to apply decay prevention methods in order to protect the child’s future oral and dental health, and most importantly, the general health.
