A dental emergency can occur at any time.

Prevention is always better than cure, however, if you do require immediate dental care the following information could save your tooth. Your teeth are something that you want to last a lifetime, so it is extremely important to see a Dentist as soon as possible after the incident.

So “What do I do if My Tooth gets knocked out?”

A common form of dental emergency is the loss of a tooth. If you have lost a tooth, it is imperative to see a dentist as soon as possible. By attaining medical treatment within 30 minutes, there is an 85% chance the tooth will survive. After you have lost your tooth, the first thing you must do is find the tooth. Once you have found your tooth, handle it very delicately – not touching the fragile root (necessary intact in order to encourage re-attachment). You must also resist the temptation to clean your tooth off with water.

If the tooth is clean, place it gently back into its socket immediately and apply slight pressure. If the tooth is dirty, rinse it using milk and place it back into its socket. Otherwise keep the tooth moist by placing it in a glass of milk or tuck it into you cheek. The sooner you visit the dentist, the greater the chance of saving the tooth.
