Recent research shows that American football players who wore the thinner over the counter sports mouth guards had twice as many concussions as their counterparts wearing the thicker professionally made guards.
First, try your best to calm down. Find the tooth, and any pieces of it. If you have saline, place it in saline. If your child is old enough to understand, have them put it in their check to keep it in it’s most natural environment. Last resort, put it in some milk. Do not wash the tooth or scrub it at all; you could damage the fibers on the root of the tooth. Call our After Hours phone number 9833 8706.
