"My child has fallen and the tooth
including the root has come out!"
Do not clean the tooth. Scrubbing will
remove the living cells on the tooth. Ensure the soft tissues
are clean and stop bleeding.
Phone the practice immediately. If your child has hit their
head go directly to A&E. Place the tooth in milk, if this
is not possible either keep it moist in water or carefully run
water to remove debris place it inside your mouth between
your teeth and your lip. You need to make it to the practice
2 hours. If this is not going to be possible you may need
to replace the tooth into the mouth. If you are sure the tooth
is an adult
tooth, gently run water on the tooth to remove debris and
place it into the socket to the same level of the adjacent teeth.
keep the tooth in place you can gently mould tinfoil around
the tooth and adjacent teeth to keep it in place.
