Posted on 1/24/2022 by Ranches Family Dental
How to save a knocked-out toothTeeth that have been knocked out are uncomfortable and might cause worry. You may believe that the tooth is permanently lost, but the truth is that it can be re-implanted. Our dentists will replace your knocked-out tooth, allowing you to grin once more. There are actions you can take to assist the dentist in re-inserting your tooth.

Location of the tooth

If your tooth has been knocked out first, you must locate it promptly. Pick up the tooth by the crown and make sure you don't touch the roots. After that, the tooth should be placed in a cup of milk or cool, clean water. This will assist in keeping the tooth safe and clear of infection. Make this an emergency by rushing to the dentist to have the tooth replaced as soon as possible.

Keep the tooth moist

It's important to keep the tooth moist because it'll be difficult to reconnect it if it's dried. The dentist will likely recommend replacing the tooth in the same place as you wait to get to the dental surgeon, although this can be unpleasant. Placing the tooth in cool, clean water or a cup of milk fully immersed is the best approach to keep it wet. The dentist will be able to effortlessly reinstall the tooth into your mouth as a result of this.

Reach out to the dentist.

When you successfully locate and store the knocked-out tooth cal your dentist immediately to schedule an emergency reception. The dentist will be waiting for you to reach their office with the equipment necessary for replacing the tooth. Our dental team is committed to giving you great services and will act fast in times of such emergencies you just need to make a call and the help is available.
