A knocked out tooth is a serious dental emergency. When a tooth has been knocked out, or avulsed, it is at risk of being permanently lost. However, quick action can increase the odds of saving the tooth. You cannot treat an avulsed tooth at home, but you can protect the tooth until you can reach our office. We will take steps to re-implant the tooth so that it can heal.
If you have knocked out a tooth, you need to get to Dr. Nazari, Houston knocked out tooth treatment dentist, as soon as possible. Time is critical. Until you reach our office, handle the tooth carefully to avoid doing any further damage. Touch only the crown of the tooth if possible. The crown is the part of the tooth that is visible above the gum line. If dirt or debris is on the tooth, rinse it gently with milk or water. Do not rub the tooth.
Keep the tooth moist until you can get to Dr. Nazari, provider of treatment for knocked out tooth in Houston. A glass of milk or tooth preservation kit is ideal, but you can also put the tooth in your mouth between your cheek and gum as long as you do not swallow it. You can also put the tooth in a cup with your saliva to keep it moist.
In some cases, the tooth can be slipped right back into its socket. Dr. Nazari,
