Broken Tooth or Lost Teeth
Services We Offer - Broken Tooth
Mid Cities Dental can help with fractured, knocked-out teeth, or a broken tooth. Should this happen, decisive, quick action should be taken. Call our office immediately so we can schedule an emergency appointment.
Step 1: Knocked Out Tooth
If your tooth has been knocked out, try to place the tooth back in its socket while waiting to see your dentist.
Step 2: Knocked Out Tooth
Rinse your mouth of any blood or other debris and place a cold cloth or compress on your cheek near the injury. This will keep down swelling.
Step 3: Safe Travel for Tooth
If you cannot get the tooth back in its socket, hold the dislocated tooth by the crown – not the root and place it in a container of saline or in your own saliva (or hold the tooth in your mouth) to keep it moist. Keep it in the solution until you arrive at the emergency room or dentist’s office.
