How to deal with a broken or knocked out tooth?
Accidental falls, sports-related injuries, biting down on hard and inappropriate objects such as tools, and facial trauma can lead to a broken or knocked-out tooth. In people with severe dental decay (cavities) or bruxism (grinding or clenching of the teeth), the tooth structure can be weakened to the point of breakage. 1
Dealing with a broken or knocked-out tooth can be distressing, but it’s important to remain calm and take immediate action. Call Express Dentist on 1-844-593-0591 so that we can connect you with an emergency dentist in Seattle. In the meantime, here are the steps to follow:
Assess the situation
If you have a broken tooth, try to determine the extent of the damage. Is it a minor chip or a more significant fracture? If the tooth is completely knocked out, locate the tooth and handle it carefully by the crown (the upper, chewing surface). Avoid touching the root (lower part of the tooth).
Rinse your mouth
Gently rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area around the broken or knocked-out tooth. This will help remove any debris or blood and provide temporary relief from pain.
If there is bleeding from your mouth, apply gentle pressure to the affected area using a clean piece of gauze or a cold, damp tea bag. Maintain the pressure for about 10 minutes or until the bleeding subsides. If the bleeding persists, seek immediate medical attention.
Preserve the knocked-out tooth
If your tooth has been completely knocked out, it’s crucial to keep it moist to increase the chances of successful re-implantation. Place the tooth back into its socket if possible, gently biting down on a clean cloth or gauze to hold it in place. If this isn’t possible, put the tooth in a small container with milk, saliva, or a tooth preservation product (available at pharmacies) to keep it moist. Avoid storing it in water.
Seek care from an emergency dentist in Seattle
Regardless of whether your tooth is broken or knocked out, it’s essential to seek urgent dental care as soon as possible. Contact Express Dentist, explain the situation, and request an immediate appointment. Most dental practices have protocols in place to handle dental emergencies promptly.
Handle pain and swelling
If you have pain or swelling, apply a cold compress to the affected area externally. This can help reduce pain and minimize swelling before you receive professional care from an emergency dentist in Seattle. Over-the-counter pain relievers can also be taken according to the recommended dosage. Remember, time is of the essence when dealing with a broken or knocked-out tooth. The faster you seek dental care, the better the chances of successful treatment or tooth re-implantation. Express Dentist partner providers are trained to handle these situations and will provide the appropriate treatment to restore your oral health and minimize long-term complications.
