CALLING ALL PARENTS/ TEACHERS
We are pleased to host training events for dentists and hygienists/therapists throughout Cumbria. Last week we had a very interesting event with Dr Richard Welbury CBE who spoke to the group about child dental trauma and we thought it would be good to pass this on to all the parents and teachers out there.
So your child has fallen over in the playground at school and has knocked out one of their permanent front teeth. This is a scenario that panics even the most calm parent. How you deal with the situation at the immediate time can make a huge difference to the outcome and the child’s appearance. Sadly too few parents and teachers know what to do.
Here is what dental experts advise:
1. TRY TO FIND THE TOOTH
2. DO NOT SCRUB THE TOOTH OR REMOVE ANY OF THE TISSUE ATTACHED
3. CLEAN DEBRIS OFF GENTLY BY RINSING IN COLD WATER OR IDEALLY THE CHILD'S SALIVA, IF YOU ARE THE PARENT USE YOUR OWN SALIVA.
4. IF YOU FEEL CONFIDENT – PLACE THE TOOTH GENTLY BUT WITH A LITTLE PRESSURE INTO THE SOCKET. CHECK IT IS THE RIGHT WAY AROUND BUT DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE ANGLE TOO MUCH
5. GO IMMEDIATELY TO A DENTIST AND INSIST ON BEING SEEN IMMEDIATELY.
6. IF YOU CAN'T PUT IT BACK INTO THE CHILD'S MOUTH, STORE IN SALIVA, MILK OR SALT WATER AND GO TO THE DENTIST IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT STORE IN A TISSUE OR ALLOW THE TOOTH TO DRY OUT.
Dental Nurse Terri has been attending a sign language course recently and was delighted to put her new skills to the test yesterday with one of our lovely patients. She was corrected a couple of times but on the whole did a great job. Both the patient and Terri were pleased with the outcome!
After a very busy month celebrating our 10 years at Ghyllmount Mr Lewis kindly put on a party night for all the team past and present. It was great to catch up with some old faces and to let our hair down after a busy time. Special thanks must go to Lucy for organising a brilliant night. A great time was had by all!
As part of our 10 year celebrations and community work in May we finished off with a litter pick around the business park and surrounding areas. We collected lots of bags of rubbish including a paddling pool!
