Your Tooth Has Been Knocked Out, What Next?

It could be an accident or contact sports activity that causes your tooth to be knocked out.
Immediately after your tooth is knocked out, recover it. Make sure you only handle the tooth by the crown to prevent any additional damage or spread of bacteria and viruses on the surface of the root. Rinse the tooth with milk, water, or a saline solution as a way of cleaning it. Don't scrub or even wipe the tooth. Putting it back may work, so try to insert it back into the empty socket. Grab it by the crown and put the root in the socket. At the very least, doing so will keep the root protected. Put pressure gently on the tooth by biting it down using medical gauze or some soft fabric.

In the event that reinserting it back in doesn't work, you want to protect it. Place it in a glass of milk. A saline solution may also do the trick.

If you have no saline solution or milk, put the tooth inside the mouth between the gums and cheeks. Immediately, get to a dentist. You have a better chance of having the tooth restored in a dental office.

Even if you managed to reinsert the tooth, you should still see a dentist immediately to have it checked whether it is properly inserted and firm. A dentist may have to make some adjustments. These are simple tricks, but they can make the difference between permanently losing your tooth and saving it. Call us to learn how you can handle, protect, and preserve a knocked-out tooth or insert it back in.

What to Do When a Dental Emergency Occurs
Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies are injuries that can happen to the tongue, teeth, mouth, or gums. They are a common occurrence and can happen at any time or place. Knowing how to handle the situation can save your tooth and prevent severe damages. You also need to understand how to analyze the situation to know if the problem needs immediate attention or if it can wait. For example, losing permanent teeth is a serious dental accident and must be addressed immediately.

Other common dental injuries you may experience are severe toothache, broken teeth, and dental infections that create pus between your teeth. If you experience any of the above dental injuries at home, contact our dentists immediately to learn how to deal with the situation and when to see us.
