Knocked Out Tooth Emergency
This tooth can be saved but IMMEDIATE action is required.
Clean the tooth in saliva or, if available, milk. If essential, rinse very quickly in water (water is not the preferred cleaning method – do not scrub the tooth)
Replace tooth in to the jaw. Remember to place it in the correct way around.
Hold tooth in place. You may need to use something such as aluminium foil to act as a splint.
Seek URGENT dental care. The sooner dental treatment can be accessed, the greater chance there is of saving the tooth.
If unable to replace tooth in mouth due to injuries, do not allow tooth to dry out. Store the tooth in milk or wrap it in plastic wrap, eg. glad wrap (not a tissue). Seek urgent dental care.
Do not store the tooth in water. Water makes the cells of the tooth swell and can cause tooth death.
If the tooth is a baby or deciduous tooth, do not attempt to replace it. It is best to leave the tooth out.
Re-implanting an avulsed deciduous tooth (knocked out baby tooth) could cause damage to the forming permanent (adult) tooth.
Unless significant soft tissue damage has occurred, antibiotics are not required.
Seek prompt dental help for management of trauma to soft tissue (lips and gums) and examination to ensure no damage has occurred to any forming adult teeth.
Dry Socket Emergency
Dry sockets are a painful condition that can occurs after the extraction of a tooth. Although dry sockets can be extremely painful an emergency appointment with one of our dentists will have you feeling relief almost immediately.
Feel free to ask your DentArana dentist if you are concerned about an extraction site.
