It is important to see a dentist if you have suffered an injury to your lips or teeth.
If you unfortunately suffer an injury to your teeth, try and keep the teeth fragments and take them with you to an emergency dentist.
You may or may not have any pain.
If you have swelling, you can apply an ice pack to the affected area and you can take ibuprofen painkillers (if you’re not allergic).
The patient visited us soon after her injury and we were able to save her two front teeth; thus avoiding extensive implant treatment.
It is important that you visit your dentist on a regular basis to make sure no infection has developed. Your dentist will advise.
