For dental pain relief use paracetamol based products and/or anti-inflammatories, but make sure you follow directions on the packet. If you have an accident and your tooth or teeth have been broken or displaced or you have cuts or lacerations, contact someone immediately.

If you have lost a whole or part of a tooth try to handle it as little as possible, place it in a glass of milk or water, and take it with you.
