If you are involved with any contact sport i.e. rugby or boxing – make sure you wear a mouthguard.

The best ones are the ones that are made especially for you by a dentist.

Wearing a mouthguard can:

  • Prevent damage to the jaw, neck and brain.
  • Reduce the shock of a blow.
  • Prevent possible concussion by reducing the force on the skull.
  • Be a lot cheaper than the potential dental costs!

If your tooth falls out…

  1. If possible put it back into the socket straight away OR put it in a glass of milk.
    DO NOT hold the tooth by the roots.
    DO NOT clean or scrub the tooth.
  2. Go straight to a dentist or hospital.
  3. Take pain killers – if required.
