Rinse the area with warm water. Put a cold compress over the facial area of the injury. Recover any broken tooth fragments. Get immediate dental attention.
Knocked Out Permanent Tooth
Recover the tooth, making sure to hold it by the crown and not the root end. Rinse, but do not clean or handle the tooth more than necessary. Reinsert the tooth in the socket and hold it in place using a clean piece of gauze or cloth. If the tooth cannot be reinserted, carry it in a cup containing milk or water. Because time is essential, see a dentist immediately.
If you have a filling, veneer or other dental restoration that has chipped, fractured, broken or fallen out, please contact our office to schedule an appointment. Do not attempt to reattach the restoration with any household adhesive, as this could cause further damage. Only a dental professional should perform the necessary repair.
