First of all DO NOT PANIC and then follow the instructions below:

- DON’T let the tooth dry out
- DON’T put aspirin or clove oil in the wound

A large proportion of dental traumas in children occur during contact sports. Many of these injuries can be avoided by wearing properly fitted mouth guards. We provide individually constructed and designed mouth guards which cover the crown and gum over the root of the tooth, which are far superior to those you simply mould in hot water.
If you need more information on mouth guards or to arrange a fitting, call reception on 0161 973 3501.
