DENTAL EMERGENCY! My tooth fell off

Can we save a tooth that got knocked out?

If the tooth is handled properly, your dentist can attempt to save your tooth.

  • Remember to quickly get to a dentist.
  • Make sure it is a permanent tooth
  • To hold only the crown of the tooth (the part where you chew)
  • If the tooth got dirt ,wash it quickly less than 10s under water
  • Put it back in the mouth, tooth socket
  • If you cannot place it back in its space, place on buccal area between cheeks and molars. Do not swallow!
  • Or Put it in milk
  • Or put in a container
  • Don’t dry, don’t wipe ,don’t scrub it.

Once at the dentist, we will try to save it by administering local anesthesia, splinting, then you will be called in 7/10days depending on the state of the tooth, root canal treatment will be performed and prescribed antibiotics.

Regular review visits are recommended.
