Hello Dhiny, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Children are easily traumatized or injured in the mouth area. This injury can be like an injury to the oral mucosa, broken teeth, tongue biting, etc. For the treatment of wounds in the oral cavity due to trauma, you should first check with the nearest doctor. This needs to be done because it is to assess the state of the area injured, and also to consider its treatment. The treatment given must be based on the state of injury / injury that occurred. If the wound is heavy enough, antibiotics etc.
At this time, what you can do is:
Gargle using warm water or an antiseptic mouthwash that does not contain mint to clean the injured area in the mouth.
Avoid giving herbal medicines that have no scientific evidence, such as given coffee, leaves, etc.
Take pain relievers that are sold freely in pharmacies such as paracetamol, ibuprofen etc. to help reduce pain.
Consult a doctor to get a more appropriate treatment in accordance with the examination.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
