What To Do With A Knocked Out Tooth.

  1. Stay Calm.
  2. Find the tooth immediately.
  3. Gently rinse under running tap or cold milk to remove any large dirt particles.
  4. Avoid scraping the root and try to hold the tooth by the crown (the other end to the pointy bit).
  5. Replace the tooth as quickly as possible with the pointy surface going into the socket. (Place as far into the socket as possible until level with the other teeth, a child will normally stop you as it will be sore before it is fully seated into place.)
  6. Keep the tooth in place by asking the child to bite on a piece of cloth.
  7. Seek immediate dental consultation,  or go to the Emergency Dental Service (NEDS) or Accident and Emergency Unit as soon as possible.

If you cannot replace the tooth at the site of  injury:

  1. 1. Avoid scraping the root, put the tooth in a moist environment (preferably some cold milk) and arrive as soon as possible at the dentist for consultation or go to NEDS or the Accident and Emergency Unit as soon as possible.

If you are one of our patients we will see you as soon as possible at Tavistock Drive Dental Care. 0115 9602717.
