The thing with accidents is that you never think they are going to happen to you. Unless you work in heath and safety, you probably don’t think twice when you get on your bike to go to work, or you grab your skateboard to go and have some fun. But the more sports you play, the more likely you are to do yourself an injury. So, even though, we all hope the day will never come when you need us as your emergency dentist in North London, we suggest you prepare yourself for a face plant.
If, while you are out there zooming along on your bike and someone opens their car door on you, you might well flip over and land on your face and lose some precious teeth. While you are picking yourself out of the road, in a bit of a panic because your teeth are still lying in front of you, don’t forget to pick them up too.
Here’s the drill for a face plant with loss of teeth:
Get up and grab your teeth
London streets are dangerous, get out of the way of traffic, but grab your teeth if you can. Pick them up by the crowns, not the roots. You are going to need those fleshy bits and handling them might damage them.
Put them back in your mouth
Yes, if you can bear to, try and fit your teeth into back into their sockets. If you can’t manage it, tuck them inside your cheek.
