How Do I Save a Knocked Out Tooth?
In the following educational dental video, experienced Buffalo family dentist Douglas Hamill DDS explains how a knocked out tooth can be saved.
When you have a tooth that has been knocked out, the first thing you should do is either put it in milk or stick it under your tongue. Rinsing and cleaning the tooth or keeping it separate from your mouth can prevent the tooth from eventually reintegrating back into the bone. Our office puts the knocked-out tooth in its original socket and bonds it to the adjacent teeth, sparing our patient the necessity of a root canal. Usually, teeth can be saved by following these steps.
