Lacerations and Cuts

Lacerations and cuts in the mouth can occur from accidents, falls, sports injuries, or biting on hard objects. These injuries may involve the lips, tongue, inner cheeks, or gums. Immediate dental care is necessary to assess the extent of the injury, control bleeding, clean the wound, and ensure proper healing. Depending on the severity, treatment may involve stitches, antibiotics, pain management, and follow-up care. Patients should seek emergency dental care if the bleeding is severe or if the injury affects breathing or swallowing.
