Tooth Repair

Broken, Fractured, or Displaced Teeth:

Immediate action must be taken when a tooth is broken, fractured, or displaced.

If a tooth has been knocked out, rinse the mouth of any blood or debris and place a cold cloth or compress on the cheek near the injury to prevent swelling.

Hold the tooth by the crown, not the root, and place it in a container of saline, warm milk, or of the affected person’s saliva until you arrive at the emergency room or our office.
