Some quick tips to help with dental emergencies:
A knocked-out tooth
- Saving the tooth is secondary; your general well-being is much more important. If you or the person who is traumatized lost consciousness or are injured, call 000 straight away.
- If bleeding is occurring, try to stop it by applying some pressure with a clean cloth.
- Find your tooth. Don’t touch the root and never hold it by the root surface. Always try to hold it by the crown (the part that is visible in the mouth). Gently rinse it of any visible soil or debris under running water (if possible) without touching the root surface.
- Time is crucial. If you can get to us within one hour, you have some chance of saving your tooth.
- Keep the tooth in your mouth on the side of your cheek. Next best option is to keep it in milk. Use water as the last option.
