What should I do in case my child chipped or knocked out a tooth?
Children’s active lifestyles are normal and a healthy part of growing up. However, it is not uncommon for a child to be injured on the playground, in the neighbourhood, or while playing sports. One of the most frequent types of injuries for kids involves their teeth.
