Tooth knocked out?
If you’ve had a tooth knocked out, you should follow the instructions below for the best chance of saving the tooth:
- Pick up the tooth by the crown (the part that is usually visible), NOT the root. The tooth should be handled carefully to minimize damage to the root.
- If dirty, gently rinse the tooth with water. Do not use soap or chemicals, do not dry the tooth or wrap in tissue or cloth.
- Replace the tooth back into the socket immediately, if possible. The quicker this happens the greater chance we have of saving it. Make sure the tooth is facing the right direction. Hold the tooth in place with your fingers or by biting down gently.
- If the tooth cannot be placed back in the socket, place it inside your mouth next to your cheek to keep it moist, or place in emergency tooth preservation liquid, or milk, NOT WATER.
- Call Spring Creek Dentistry right away at (281) 407-8333.
If you’ve had a tooth knocked out, have a severe toothache, or have experienced some sort of other traumatic dental injury, don’t wait until it’s too late. You should see your dentist right away for the best chance of recovery.
