What should patients do if a tooth is completely dislodged?

A dislodged tooth is always a dental emergency, but it requires special treatment even before you come to see Dr. Koren.

You should attempt to find the tooth immediately.

A dislodged tooth should be handled only by the enamel, never the roots.

If the tooth is dirty, it can be lightly rinsed off with plain water.

The ideal preservative for a loose tooth is a patient’s own mouth as saliva acts as a preservative. If possible, place the tooth into the empty socket and hold it in place with the tongue until reaching Koren Family Dental in 08869.

If the loose tooth can’t be placed back in the empty socket, place it in a glass of cow’s milk, as it has natural preservatives that will keep the tooth alive until it can be implanted.

It’s important to contact Koren Family Dental immediately when a tooth has been knocked loose, as there is only about a one hour window of opportunity to successfully implant the tooth after it’s been out of the mouth. Koren Family Dentistry in 08869 will help you if you have a dental emergency.
