Knocked-Out or Avulsed Tooth

With proper emergency care, a missing tooth can be successfully implanted again and remain in the mouth for years. In the case of a knocked-out permanent tooth, knowing what to do means the difference between saving and missing the tooth. If you have a knocked-out tooth, try to get to the emergency dental clinic in Richmond Hill within 30 minutes.

Essential Steps in Saving Knocked-Out Tooth

– Finding teeth

If your tooth is lost, find it as soon as possible. Remember not to touch the tooth root. Hold the tooth of its crown to increase the chances of saving the tooth and minimizing damage to the root.

– Washing

You can rinse it with water. Do not use soap or other chemicals. Do not rub your teeth while brushing, and do not dry it after washing. Besides, there is no need to wrap your teeth in cloth or napkins.

– Reinserting

If possible, place the tooth in its socket immediately. The sooner the tooth is in place, the more likely it is to survive. Gently press the tooth into the socket with your finger and close your mouth.

– Keep the missing tooth moist

The missing tooth should stay moist. If you cannot reinsert the missing tooth in its socket, select one of the following:

– Use emergency dental care kit (available from a pharmacy)

– Put the missing teeth in the glass of milk

– Keep in the mouth (next to the cheek)

So, store the missing tooth in a glass containing milk and head to the emergency dental clinic. You can also keep the tooth next to your cheek until you get to the emergency dentist. Water is not recommended for long-term care, as root surface cells cannot survive long in the water.

– Visiting The Emergency Dentist

Ideally, deliver the tooth to the dentist within 30 minutes of the injury.

The emergency dentist first rinses the tooth to remove excess debris. Then he re-implants the tooth into its socket. Time plays an important role here. If the tooth root and jawbone are not damaged, the tooth will be fully healed within three to four weeks. If the tooth root is damaged, usually, root canal therapy will be done. If there is no sign of infection, the patient should be seen six months later by the emergency dentist. The next examination is done next year to make sure the tooth is fully implanted.
