Dental fractures are always fun. Luckily we have a Dental Box available in the Emergency Department. Here are some instructional videos shown today. These will be stored in Pod A. Thanks to Dr. Vishnu Pandurangadu for the inservice on these tools and theDentalBox.com for the videos.
If a tooth is loose (subluxed) or out (lured), you may need to stabilize it with bridge made of Coe- Pak periodontal paste. Make sure your gloves are wet and the teeth are dry.
Displaced Crown, Fillings or Veneers
If a filling comes out or a crown comes off, you can use the Temerex Cement to stick it back on. Again keep the tooth surface dry.
If a patient has a broken teeth, especially if the dentin or root is exposed, you’ll need to cover it for comfort and to preserve the tooth.
