Tooth knocked out?
If you’ve had a tooth knocked out, the first thing to remember is not to panic, and to call us right away. If you still have the tooth, follow the instructions below for your best chance of saving it:
- Pick the tooth up by the crown (visible portion) not the root in order to minimize damage or injury to the tooth root.
- If dirty, gently rinse with water. Do not use soap or chemicals, do not scrub, do not dry. All of these will damage the tooth.
- If possible, place the tooth back into the socket, making sure it is facing the right direction. Hold it in place with your fingers, or bite gently to hold the tooth in place.
- If it cannot be placed back in the socket, place the tooth in milk (not water) to preserve. If not placed inside the mouth or in milk or a tooth preservation solution, the tooth will dry out and may not be salvageable.
- Come see us at White Spruce Dental as soon as possible for the best chance of saving the tooth and preserving your natural smile!
