Oral structure or teeth may be damaged due to an accident. The chances for the injured oral structure to be healed and the damaged teeth to be saved often depend on whether treatment is done correctly and timely.

Oral structure injury

The oral tissues or oral structures such as lips, gum, oral mucosa, alveolar bone, or even upper or lower jawbones may be injured during an impact.

Management

Stop the bleeding by pressing on the injured area with a piece of clean gauze or towel. Then go to see a dentist immediately.
