   First, track down that tooth! You can actually take it to the dentist and have it reimplanted, provided that you handle your knocked-out tooth somewhat delicately.

   Once you’ve found the tooth, be careful cleaning it off—it’s best to just gently rinse it with milk or a saline solution so that you don’t accidentally damage it further. Try not to touch the roots.

   On your way to your emergency dentist appointment, keep the tooth in its original socket, if that’s possible. And if not, a little container of milk is a great tooth receptacle—the milk’s sugars can feed the cells, keeping them alive until they can get reimplanted.

   If all goes well with the reimplantation, your tooth can be healed in two months.

   More than five million teeth are knocked out every year in children and adults but if this happens to you due to an injury or accident it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s lost for good. Proper emergency action can save the tooth so that it can be replanted successfully and last for years to come.

   Pick up the tooth by the crown (the chewing surface) NOT the root.

   If dirty, gently rinse the tooth with water.

   Reposition the tooth in the socket immediately, if possible.

   Keep the tooth moist at all times.

   See an endodontist or dentist within 30 minutes of the injury.

How do you treat a knocked out tooth?

   
   User Avatar 
   Knocked-Out Tooth A knocked-out tooth is an emergency that requires immediate medical attention. If these emergency tips are followed right after a tooth has been knocked out, there is a good chance that the tooth can be saved. The tooth should be picked up by the top of the tooth (crown). The root of the tooth should not be touched. Gently rinse the tooth off with plain water to clean it. Make sure you cover the drain so the tooth doesn't accidentally go down the drain. The tooth should not be scrubbed or any attached tissue should not be removed. Gently place the tooth back into the socket in the correct position, if possible. Gently try to bite down on gauze to hold it in position. If it is not possible to put the tooth back into its socket, place the tooth into a container with milk, warm salt water or your own saliva. Get to a dentist immediately, preferable within one hour. Call your dentist immediately. The longer you wait for implantation, the less likely you will be able to save
   the tooth. FOR MORE INFORMATION AND VIDEO GO TO: http:www.emergencysuppliesinfo.com The tooth may be placed in a clean container of milk, cool water with or without a pinch of salt, or in saliva. If possible, the patient and the tooth should be brought to the dentist within 30 minutes of the tooth loss

Asked in Health

   

Does trauma to a tooth result in tooth loss?

   
   User Avatar 
   If a tooth is knocked out, you should push it back into its socket as soon as possible. It depends on the nature of the trauma, the intensity of the trauma and the type of damage that is done. If a tooth is fractured , it does not mean that it has to be removed. IF A tooth becomes discolored soon it need not be removed. If it becomes loose it need not necessarily be lost. HAVING SAID that , it should also be noted that the best remedial measures too need not meet with success in retaining a traumatised tooth,
