When a dental emergency occurs, there are certain steps to help you cope
until you can visit your dentist. It is important to remain calm, whether
you have a knocked-out tooth or severe tooth pain. Your dentist of general
dentistry can address the issue, and until then, you should follow the
steps found in the attached video.
If you have a knocked-out tooth, gently rinse it of any dirt, and try to
place it back in the empty socket. If it will not go in, then place it
in a cup of milk until seeing your dentist. In the event that your tooth
is cracked or chipped, gather as many pieces as possible and see your
emergency dentist for possible dental bonding.
