Accidents happen! Dr. J has seen his fair share of daredevil acts and sports injuries. Thankfully, primary teeth that fall out and adult teeth that are injured have new technologies to save them. We can help your child through these situations with compassion and gentle care.
Most primary teeth that are knocked around can heal. However, primary teeth that are completely knocked out should not be replaced. Permanent teeth that are knocked around can also heal. Permanent teeth that are completely knocked out should be seen within 60 minutes of impact, and reimplanted/secured in order to have the best chance.
If your child has an injury, the first thing is to not panic. The second thing is call Dr. J, your Royal Palm beach Pediatric dentist for an opinion of the urgency to be treated.
Dr. J spends many hours per year travelling in order to continue his education. He takes courses and studies the new indications for permanent teeth trauma. You can be reassured he knows the very latest techniques as well as how to manage a child or young adult through these situations.
