My Tooth Was Knocked Out or Fell Out
If you have a tooth that was knocked out or a tooth that simply fell out, try finding the tooth, rinse it in warm water, and place it in a glass of milk. Although this may seem odd at first, Dr. Allen might be able to save your tooth. If in the case that she can’t save the tooth, the next option would be to discuss the possibility of a dental implant, a bridge, or a denture. It is important to note that at times root tips or pieces of a tooth remain after it’s been knocked out. For this very reason it is crucial that these fragments are removed from the mouth by our dentist during the emergency visit.
