First Aid tips for oral health



Lacerated Lip or Tongue


Vigorous bleeding may be expected initially.

Apply direct pressure to the bleeding area with a sterile 2 x 2 gauze square, for 15-20 minutes.

Check for broken/fractured or avulsed teeth.

If swelling is present with a lip injury, apply a cold compress.

If the bleeding does not stop readily, or the injury is severe, contact the parent/caregiver to take the child to a hospital emergency room.
