Dental Emergency Guide- Archived Summary
The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services Children’s Oral Health Program “Dental Emergency Guide” is a resource for the identification and management of dental emergencies in the school setting. The guide is printed on high gloss, UV coated 11 x 16 durable poster-like paper. The guide includes information on soft tissue injury, avulsed teeth, displaced or dislodged teeth, broken orthodontic wires, toothache and abscess, prolonged bleeding after extractions, and fractured teeth.
It was developed in 2010 and mailed to over 3,300 New Jersey school nurses. The cost to print each poster was approximately $ .48. The Dental Emergency Guide was designed to aid school nurses and teachers in treating minor dental emergencies.
School nurses displayed the poster in the school nurse office as a reference to aid in the treatment of minor dental emergencies.
