Knocked out tooth? Here are some tips on handling an avulsed tooth.

March 30, 2018

1. Try to find the tooth! This may not be as easy as you think if the injury took place on a playground, basketball court or while skateboarding, so try to stay calm.
2. Hold the tooth by the crown and rinse the root in water if the tooth is dirty. Don’t scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments.
3. If it’s possible, gently insert and hold the tooth in its socket while you head to the dentist. If that’s not possible, put the tooth in a cup of milk and bring it to the dentist.
** Time is critical for successful reimplantation, so give us a call immediately.*
