You might not be dealing with a dental emergency if you chip a tooth. But don't hesitate to speak with an experienced dentist at Village Family dental if you’re concerned about it. He’ll explain how to handle your tooth until you can visit the office.
A knocked-out tooth is a serious dental emergency. If you put off going to the dentist right away you could lose the tooth entirely. Promptly clean your mouth and the injured tooth, especially if it's fallen out and is dirty. Use the following steps to save a knocked-out tooth:
If the knocked-out tooth cannot go back into the empty socket, hold it in your mouth next to your cheek or keep it in a glass of milk. Moisture helps prevent the tooth’s root from dying.
