Life is not meant to be lived locked up in a closet. “You only live once” is more than just a catchy phrase but the thing with
being adventurous and outdoorsy is that accidents happen and when they do not everyone knows how to deal with them.
Among many other emergencies, a dental health crisis is one of the most common ones, especially among children who tend to spend a huge chunk of their days in the playground either dangling down from those monkey bars or wheezing past you on the backyard swing sets.
Unfortunately, amidst all the fun and play some land themselves with a broken tooth or a damaged gum instead of ending up with just a few scrapes on the knees. Knowing what to do when the crisis strikes can make all the difference between saving the tooth or losing it forever. But what to do when the office hours are over. Most of the times the damage requires immediate attention and cannot be put off to the next day.
