Emergency Tooth Tips:

When a tooth is knocked out it is vital that a dentist addresses the injury within 30 minutes of the accident, in order to have a chance at saving the tooth. You should:

  • Find the tooth, and gently rinse it if it's dirty. Do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments.

  • If possible, carefully place the tooth back in its socket, and hold it in place with your fingers or by gently biting down on it. Alternatively, you can store the tooth in your mouth, between the cheek and gum. If this is not possible (for instance, in the case of a small child), immerse the tooth in milk and transport it to the dentist.

  • Get to a dentist immediately for an emergency dental appointment.

If a tooth is knocked loose, the immediate procedure is very similar - guide the tooth back into its proper place with your finger, and have the tooth looked at by a dentist within 30 minutes.

Options for a chipped tooth depend on if you can find the chip. If you have it, keep the chip moist until you get to a dentist and, if the tooth isn't broken across the nerve, we might be able to re-attach the chip to your tooth. Alternatively, we will discuss bonding, veneers and other options with you.

With the proper emergency action, a tooth that has been knocked out or knocked loose can be successfully replanted. Remember that timing is the key as each passing minute affects the possible success of the treatment.
