Dental accident – what to do?
Here is the correct procedure:
keep calm and act quickly
look for the tooth or the broken off piece of tooth immediately
only touch the broken tooth at the crown (not at the root!)
do not clean or disinfect the tooth
place the tooth immediately in a tooth rescue box (if this is not available, use saline solution or milk)
In case of heavy bleeding, press gauze or a clean, lint-free piece of fabric (e.g. handkerchief) on the wound and cool it externally.
Call a dentist or dental clinic as soon as possible.
