Have You Knocked Out a Tooth?

We sure can try, but your help is needed, and the most important word is TIME.

When a permanent tooth is knocked out, the less time it is out of the mouth the better. In fact, the best results are obtained when the tooth is replaced within 30 minutes!

A parent or friend can place the tooth back into the socket or place it in a wet issue and bring the patient, and the tooth to the dentist at once.

Don’t attempt to clean the tooth—that may damage it. If you re-implant the tooth yourself, come to the office as soon as possible, anyway, because the tooth may need to be wired or otherwise stabilized in position for a couple of weeks.

Each case of injury is different as, indeed are the results. But keeping your actions prompt may save your or your child’s beautiful smile.

What would you do if another dental emergency arose? It might be pain, swelling, fractured teeth, or a lost filling. Whatever the problem may be, if you think it’s an emergency, we do, too.

If you have an emergency during office hours, call, and we’ll make every attempt to see you that day.
