If you have knocked out a tooth remember these tips:
· Act quickly, if the tooth is re-implanted within 30 minutes of the accident prognosis is greatly improved for saving the tooth. Dental emergencies must be addressed quickly by an emergency dentist.
· Pick up the tooth by the crown (chewing surface) NOT the root surface.
· If root has become dirty gently rinse with water, do not scrub the tooth, use any soap, cleaners, or chemicals.
· Reposition the tooth in the socket immediately. This can be somewhat painful but will greatly improve the likelihood of saving the tooth.
· Keep the tooth moist at all times. If it cannot be re-implanted place the tooth in milk, hanks salt solution, emergency dental solutions, or place in mouth between cheek and gums. The sooner you can get in to see an emergency dentist the better the outcome. Do not place tooth in a cup of water as it cannot tolerate this for long.
