Broken Jaw, Cold/Canker Sores, Bleeding After Baby Tooth Falls Out
Possible Broken Jaw:
If a fractured jaw is suspected, try to keep the jaws from moving by using a towel, tie or handkerchief, then take the child to the nearest hospital emergency room.
Bleeding After Baby Tooth Falls Out:
Fold and pack a clean gauze or cloth over the bleeding area. Have the child bite on the gauze with pressure for 15 minutes. This may be repeated once; If bleeding persists, see a dentist.
Many children occassionally suffer from “cold” or “canker” sores. Usually over-the-counter preparations give relief. Because some serious diseases may begin as sores, it is important to have a dental evaluation if these sores persist.
