Are you suffering from this common dental emergency?
A knocked out tooth is an extremely common dental emergency within the field of dental care and can be caused by many incidents such as falling off a bike or tripping over. Due to this occurring often our specialist team has created an easy guide to caring for your knocked out tooth.
What happens next?
Our team suggests you hold the tooth by the crown and not the root, it is also vital the tooth is clean, this can be achieved by applying saliva to it, or through the means of a liquid such as milk. Lastly we suggest you push the adult tooth back into position, placing a clean piece of tissue over the tooth and gently biting to apply pressure, you should then call for dental assistance immediately.
