Post-Trauma Care

  • Pain management: local anaesthesia may have been given during the dental visit. However, your child may complain of pain after the anaesthesia effect wears off. Pain medication should be given as prescribed.
  • Home-care: you should continue to brush your child's teeth with a soft toothbrush twice daily. Avoid the areas of injury for the first few days; instead, gently wipe these areas with a damp gauze soaked in an antibacterial mouthrinse, such as chlorhexidine.
  • A soft diet is advised for the next 2 - 3 days.
  • Attent the follow-up appointments scheduled for your child.
