Symptoms and signs — Not all may be present bleeding from the mouth, lips, tongue or tooth socket pain around or in the mouth following an injury a broken or displaced tooth swelling in the mouth or around the jaw How you can help 1. If there is any risk of blood going down the throat or of increased swelling of the mouth, tongue or throat, turn the patient on the side in a supported position. If the bleeding is only slow or moderate and there appears to be no breathing difficulty, assist the patient into the position of greatest comfort — generally sitting or half-sitting — and check the site of any bleeding.
Control any bleeding Apply firm pressure to any bleeding wound or tooth socket. Fold a sterile dressing or clean tissue into a pad and ask the patient to hold it firmly on the bleeding site for at least 10 minutes. If the bleeding is coming from a cut lip, advise the patient to hold the injured area firmly between the folds of a moist tissue or dressing.

If a tooth has been knocked out: Handle the displaced tooth by the crown and not the root. Ask the patient to suck it clean and then try to replace the tooth in the original position in the socket to keep the root alive.
