Trauma Management

Dental Trauma to Kids teeth is very common. Accidents resulting in damage to the teeth and surrounding structures will often require immediate attention.

The Tooth Company Kids is a registered provider for ACC and all trauma management is carried out by our specialist paediatric dentist. Referrals from other dental professionals is welcome.

It is important if your child has an injury no matter how big or small you perceive it to be – to have the trauma assessed straight away and to register the injury with ACC.

If an adult tooth is knocked out, try to put the tooth back in the same position (make sure it is the adult tooth and not the baby one). If the adult tooth will not fit correctly place the tooth in milk and visit the dentist on the same day. Do not put the baby tooth back inside the socket.
