What to do:
Knocked out tooth:
If dirty, rinse the tooth in milk, being careful to hold it by the crown only (not roots). If milk is not available, use water (few seconds only) or have patient gently suck it clean, then put the tooth back in the socket. If the tooth cannot be replanted, wrap in Glad Wrap or place it in milk or in the patient’s mouth inside the cheek.
Contact our clinic as soon as possible, as time is critical for successful replanting.
Try to clean debris from the injured area with warm water. If caused by a blow, place a cold compress on the face next to the injured tooth to minimize swelling. Try to find all the bits that are missing and bring them to the dentist, keeping them moist. Some broken pieces can be bonded back onto the teeth almost invisibly.
Contact our clinic as soon as possible.
