What to Do When A Tooth Is Knocked Out
First of all, it is important to know that it is possible to save a tooth that has been knocked out. Before you get to our office, however, it is extremely important that you are especially careful when you handle the tooth. DO NOT touch the root with your fingers! There are tissue and bone fragments attached to the root that can aid in replacing the tooth.
You can try to gently reinsert the tooth back into its socket. This will keep the root of the tooth protected from further damage. If this is not possible, place the tooth in a container of milk or warm water until you can get to our office.
We know that dental emergencies happen at the most inconvenient times. Whether you are a regular patient or not, a member of our professional team is always available to get you through your emergency and provide you with the prompt treatment you need.
