There are many benefits of seeing an emergency dentist immediately. These benefits include reducing pain, preventing further damage to the teeth, and avoiding costly dental procedures. Seeking an emergency dentist now means that you will heal a lot faster. The sooner you visit a dentist, the sooner you get the treatment and see the result in less time. If you face a dental emergency and don’t get the required treatment, you may end up losing your tooth. Especially if you have knocked out, broken, or loose teeth.

What if my tooth has been knocked out?

If an adult tooth is knocked out, it’s important to stay calm and handle the tooth by the crown (smooth white part), not the root (yellowish pointy part). If the tooth is dirty, gently rinse it in milk or saline for a few seconds. Do not rinse the tooth with water. Holding the clean tooth by the crown, gently put it back into the hole in the gum (socket). If you can’t put it back in, put it in milk or saliva – by spitting into a container (if it’s your tooth) or having your child spit into a container (if it’s theirs). It’s important to see a dentist as soon as possible!
