WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU LOSE A TOOTH? – OAK RIDGE
Losing a tooth is a big deal. It is always important to call your Oak Ridge dentist, at Summerfield Family Dentistry, in an emergency, especially if you have lost a tooth.
To give yourself the best chance of preserving the tooth, avoid touching the roots. How? Carefully pick it up by the crown and gently rinse it off in milk or warm water. Next, if you can, carefully position the tooth back in the socket and keep it in place with a clean washcloth or gauze. Sometimes this is not possible. If so, do everything you can to keep the tooth moist. Store it in a cup of milk or saliva and bring the tooth with you to the dentist as soon as you can. In many cases, our dentists can place it back in your mouth with no need for additional restorative treatment.
