Dental Accident 3 years on….

Three years ago a distress Mum called our surgery because her ten-year-old son’s lower front tooth was knocked out at school.
Terri gave her advice on how to keep the tooth in milk and the child was seen within one hour of the accident.Viola re-implanted the tooth back into the lower jaw and using her Orthodontic wires she fitted a splint around the incisor to hold it firm while the tissues began to heal.

Last Friday, on a Regular Check-up the lower front tooth seemed healthy, stable and not even discoloured. Both the Mum and son where very happy.

It was very satisfying for all concerned to see that quick treatment of such a traumatic incident could result in such a great long-term result.
