In this video, you will learn to administer first aid for dental trauma.

There are three scenarios to consider:

Scenario 1: the tooth has been knocked completely out of the gum:

- Do not try to replant the tooth yourself.

- Have the casualty rinse out their mouth with drinking water.

- Stop the bleeding by applying pressure to the gum with a sterile gauze pad.

- Hold the tooth by the crown, not by the root, which still contains living cells.

- Put the tooth in saline solution or, failing that, milk.

- Get the casualty to a dentist as quickly as possible.

The quicker you act, the better the chances of saving the tooth!

Scenario 2: the tooth has been knocked out of position, but is still in the gum:

- Leave the tooth as close as possible to its initial position.

Take the victim to a dentist as quickly as possible
