Overview

A severe blow to the head is a medical emergency that requires immediate emergency attention. A head injury can have lasting consequences on your oral and overall health. Here’s what you need to know about dealing with a severe blow to the head.

When to seek care

While any blow to the head is frightening, unconsciousness (even for a brief period) seizures, problems staying awake, vomiting, difficulties walking, and blood or clear fluid leaking from the nose or ears are all signs of a severe head blow. Avoid moving someone if they’re unconscious. If they’re experiencing seizures or vomiting, gently turn them on their side, while keeping their neck and head straight, to prevent choking. If the person is awake and responsive, hold an ice pack on their head to reduce pain and swelling. Use a clean cloth or piece of gauze to apply gentle pressure to any area where they are bleeding.

What to know

Any severe blow to the head requires immediate medical attention; call 911 or take the person to the emergency room if they’re able to move on their own. Once they’re stable, we can examine them to see if their head injury had any impact on their oral health. It’s likely that the trauma or impact from their head injury damaged their gums or teeth; we’ll treat these injuries once it’s safe for them to undergo dental treatment.
