Emergency Dentist Indianapolis Discussed what to do if a Tooth is Knocked Out

Having a tooth knocked out can be painful and scary for a lot of people, but it is always best not to panic. 

 

If one or more of your teeth are knocked out, there are a few important immediate actions to take:

 

Do not pick up the tooth by its' root, handle it by the crown. rise the tooth under cold water but don't scrub it, then place it in a cup of milk or water. This is vital for the tooth so that it doesn't dry out and can be reimplanted by your Indianapolis dentists. 

 

Place a piece of gauze on the gums to minimize and/or stop the bleeding. Once the situation is under control, contact us immediately by calling (317) 241-9876.
