Knocked-Out Teeth in Tomball

  • Pick up the tooth by the crown (the chewing surface) NOT the root, handle the tooth carefully when you pick it up, and never touch the root of the tooth, only the crown.
  • If dirty, gently rinse the tooth with only water do not use soap or chemicals. Don’t scrub or dry the tooth, and don’t wrap the tooth in a tissue or cloth, store the tooth in a container of milk.
  • The tooth must stay moist at all times,  if it can’t be replaced in the socket, put it in milk, in your mouth next to your cheek, or in an emergency tooth preservation kit (such as Save-a-Tooth®).
  • Try to put the tooth back into its socket right away. Gently push it in with your fingers, by handling the crown, or position it above the socket and close your mouth slowly. Hold the tooth in place with your fingers or by gently biting down on it.
  • It’s best to see the doctor within 30 minutes; however, it is possible to save a tooth even if it has been outside the mouth for an hour or more.
