What Do I Do If A permanent Tooth Is Knocked Out?

If your tooth was knocked out in an injury, there are a few things you can do to help ensure the best possible outcome as you prepare to come in for your emergency appointment.

First, recover the tooth and place it back in its socket, if possible. If it is too painful to place back in the socket, or if this isn’t possible for any reason, you can also place the tooth in a cup of cold milk or your own saliva. This will help keep the pulp alive and increase the chances of saving your tooth. Whatever you do, do not touch the root, you may damage it.

To treat pain before you arrive for your appointment, use a cold compress on the outside of your mouth. If you have any questions or you need to schedule an emergency appointment, call immediately at (919) 298-2308.
