What to Do When Your Tooth is Knocked Out

what to do when your tooth is knocked outMillions of people suffer from dental trauma every year, and about five million of them knock out a tooth. A knocked-out tooth is a dental emergency and can result in the loss of the tooth. However, if you act promptly in the aftermath of the accident and see our emergency dentist in Thousand Oaks within half an hour of that loss, you may be more likely to save the tooth and your smile.

• Do not touch the root.
Handle it carefully, touching only the crown of the tooth. If it is dirty, rinse it gently with water. Do not brush or scrub the tooth, and do not use soap.

• Keep the tooth moist.
Do not wrap it in cloth or tissues, but do try to reinsert the tooth into the socket. If you cannot easily slip it back into place, do not force it but instead place it in a tooth preservation kit, a glass of milk, or in your mouth between your gums and cheek. Do not store the tooth in tap water.

• Seek emergency dental care immediately.
The best chance to save teeth is to treat them within half an hour, but we may even be able to save teeth that have been out for more than an hour. We may be able to place the tooth back into the socket and stabilize it so that it heals properly. If the tooth cannot be saved, you may have other options for restoration, which can include dental implants.
