A tooth that has been knocked out or 'avulsed' is a serious dental injury and should be seen to by a dentist as soon as possible. Your tooth can be saved if you seek professional care immediately.Call our emergency dentists
at Brad Pearce Dental Surgery. We recommend you handle the tooth very carefully. Hold it by the crown (the top of the tooth) and never the root, as this can be damaged easily. If possible, gently rinse the tooth under a saline solution or milk, then place the tooth back in your mouth. Do not wipe the tooth.
If it's too painful to place the tooth back into your mouth, keep it between your teeth and cheek, or place it into a small container of milk. It's vital to keep your tooth moist-do not place it in water.
Seek dental attention immediately.
