When a dental trauma occurs, the first thing to remember is to stay calm enough so that you are able to decide how to handle it. There will be a lot of pain, and possible profuse bleeding from soft tissue cuts, which must be controlled ASAP – so get right over to your Denver dentist.

Be prepared. There are dental first-aid kits available for home use, with ready-to-use emergency supplies, and instructions as to how to apply them. These are good to have on hand for temporary relief until you can get to a Denver dentist.

If you can’t stop the bleeding, and the situation becomes too serious, call for emergency services.
