Lost Tooth

If you have knocked out  or lost tooth, this is a dental emergency.

If an adult tooth is knocked out, please try to put the tooth back into place and come and see us urgently (within an hour!)

If you cannot put it back into the socket, place the tooth into cold milk and call us on 02 86779094 to schedule an emergency appointment with our dentist.

The dentist will numb the affected area and reposition the tooth, then check that it’s in the correct position by taking an X-ray before splinting it to the teeth either side. Do not try to put a baby tooth back into place, please bring your child to see us immediately.

If you knock out a tooth you should:
  •  Find the tooth/piece of tooth
  •  Hold it by the crown only not the root
  •  Put it back into position (adult teeth only) and bite on a handkerchief to hold the tooth in place or
  •  Rinse it in water if you are not home or
  •  Place the tooth into milk/saliva

If you would like to book in to have a discussion  about lost tooth with our dentist, please contact us to schedule an appointment on (02) 86779094 or fill out your details to contact us.
