Frequently Asked Questions About Knocked Out Tooth

It is highly recommended to take your tooth to the dentist immediately. This is because the sooner the tooth is re-implanted, the better the chances are of it being successfully saved. The ideal time frame is 30 minutes to one hour from when the tooth was knocked out.

While waiting for your dental visit, store your tooth in milk to keep it viable for reimplantation. Remember, though, that the more treatment is delayed, the lesser the chances are of your tooth being saved.

If your permanent tooth gets knocked out, it is important to seek professional dental care at once, as time is of the essence. The longer you wait, the success rate of saving your tooth decreases significantly.

When your tooth can no longer be saved, various services are available to replace it. It is advised to still seek treatment, as a series of health problems can develop when a missing tooth is not restored.

Here are a few steps to manage a knocked-out tooth at home:

  1. Search for the tooth and pick it up by the crown (the part used for chewing).
  2. Rinse off any dirt or debris with milk or water. Do not scrub the tooth so as not to damage any tissue that may still be attached.
  3. If this cannot be done, store the tooth in a clean container of milk and bring it to the dentist as soon as possible.

If your tooth can’t be replanted, you must keep it moist at all times. You can put it back in your mouth between your cheek and gum. It can also be stored in a clean container filled with milk while you’re waiting to see the dentist. Storing it in water is the least recommended option as this affects the pH of the tooth, which is essential in keeping it viable.
