Tooth popped out of my mouth
Emergency Dentistry: Emergency dental care is typically needed to address mouth trauma and broken teeth, along with loosened or broken fillings.
You might get your tooth popped out either by an accident involving the face or getting a blow to your mouth.
If that happens, act quickly & within 30 minutes visit your nearest dental office.
Handle your tooth carefully and pick it up by the crown and never touch the root.
If it’s dirty then gently rinse it with milk or water.
Don’t scrub or dry or use any soap or chemicals or wrap it in any cloth.
You should try to gently place the tooth back in its socket but not press it; if you can’t place it back then should keep it moist until you reach the dental office.
Place it in your mouth ideally next to your cheek or place it in a cup in which you have collected your saliva or milk or you can also dip it in a contact lens solution or in an emergency kit such as ‘save-a-tooth’.
Avoid using regular tap water.
If it’s a baby tooth then you should avoid placing it back in socket as it might damage the permanent tooth below it.
It is advisable to meet your dentist within thirty minutes, but it is also possible to save the tooth after even an hour or more.
