First Aid tips for oral health



Possible Jaw Dislocation or Fracture


If a jaw fracture or dislocation is suspected, immobilize the jaw by any means available. Place a scarf, handkerchief, tie or towel under the chin and tie the ends on top of the child's head.

Contact the parent/caregiver and arrange for the child to be taken immediately to an oral surgeon or hospital emergency room.

At the hospital the child should be seen by an oral-maxillofacial, orthopedic or plastic surgeon, if available.
