IF A PERMANENT TOOTH IS KNOCKED OUT
* Gently clean the tooth by sucking off any dirt or debris or rinse the tooth and tooth fragments in milk for a few seconds. (DO NOT rinse in water). * Handle the tooth by it’s crown (the white enamel top part of the tooth), not the root, and be careful not to rub off the tissue fragments on the root of the tooth, as these are needed for the tooth to take if it is reattached by your dentist. * Replace the tooth back in the socket (be certain that the tooth is placed into the socket the correct way round – compare to the teeth next to it). This should occur within minutes of the tooth being knocked out. *Hold the tooth in place by biting on something soft like a tissue. * If you are unable to get the tooth to sit back in the socket then keep it moist by keeping it in a cup of milk, sealing it in plastic or leave it in your mouth next to the cheek, as long as you are not likely to become unconscious or swallow the tooth. * Book an emergency dental appointment online or call Clubb Dental as soon as possible on 3378 0033
IF A BABY (DECIDUOUS) TOOTH IS KNOCKED OUT
* DO NOT reinsert the tooth back into the socket (Deciduous teeth are not usually placed back). * If you think that the tooth is not a baby (deciduous) tooth then gently rinse the tooth or root fragments in milk to remove dirt blood etc. (DO NOT rinse in water). * Place the tooth into a clean container or plastic wrap. * Book an emergency dental appointment online or call Clubb Dental immediately on 3378 0033
