Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue injuries (tongue, cheeks, gum, and lips)

To control any bleeding, here’s what to do:

  • Rinse your mouth with a mild salt-water solution.

  • Use a moistened piece or gauze or a teabag to apply pressure to the site.  Hold in place for 15-20 minutes.

  • To both control bleeding and relieve pain,  hold a compress to the outside of the mouth or cheek in the affected area for 5-10 minutes.

  • If the bleeding doesn’t stop, see your dentist right away or go to a hospital emergency room.  Continue to apply pressure on the bleeding site with the gauze until you can be treated.
