Experiencing a knocked-out tooth? Here’s what you should do

A knocked-out tooth, medically known as an avulsed tooth, requires immediate attention for the best chance of saving the tooth. Important steps include:

  • Handling the tooth by the crown, not the root.
  • Gently rinsing the tooth with milk or saline solution without scrubbing.
  • Attempting to reinsert the tooth into the socket if possible, or keeping it moist by placing it in milk or saliva.

At MillBridge Dentistry, we prioritize your emergency by providing prompt assessments and treatment options for knocked-out teeth in Waxhaw.
