It is essential to see a dentist immediately if your tooth has been knocked out. When a tooth comes out, tissues, nerves and blood vessels become damaged. If the tooth can be placed back into the socket within the hour, there is a chance the tissues will grow to support the tooth once again.
US Dental recommend the following important steps:
- Call the dentist (US Dental Care : +7 (495) 933-86-86)
- Pick up the tooth by the crown and rinse it under warm water. Do not touch the root!
- If possible, place it back into its socket - if not, tuck it into the cheek pouch.
- If you can’t put the tooth in the mouth, put the tooth into a cup of milk, saliva or water as a last resort. It is essential the tooth doesn’t dry out.
Visit US Dental as soon as possible and your dentist will try and replace the tooth in its natural socket. In some cases, the tooth will reattach, but if the inner mechanisms of the teeth are seriously damaged, root canal therapy may be necessary.
