What to do if you have a knocked-out tooth
A knock-out tooth, or tooth avulsion, is a common occurrence among athletes and those who participate in contact sports. Mouthguards are making these accidents less common, and are highly recommended for anyone competing in these activities, whether it’s professionally or just for fun.
If you have a tooth knocked-out, it’s important to note that the faster it can be placed back in the socket, the more likely the chance of it being saved.
Follow these steps if you’re tooth is knocked out:
- Stay calm and try to find the tooth.
- Gently clean the tooth with saline or, even better, milk. Try not to tough the root end or scrub the tooth too hard.
- If you can, replace the tooth. Face it the right way (use your other teeth as a guide) and place it in the socket. Give it a forceful push to get it all the way in.
- If you can’t replace it, keep it in milk or saline or in the mouth alongside the cheek. We want to keep the cells of the root alive so it can be successfully reunited.
- Whether you’ve been able to replace the tooth or not, make an emergency dental appointment with us right away.
