A Broken Tooth
If you break or dislodge a tooth, don’t panic! If you act quickly and take care of the tooth, it should have no problems healing. In cases where the tooth has actually been knocked out, try to place it back in to its socket while waiting to see the dentist.
You should gently rinse your mouth to get rid of debris and any blood which may be in your mouth. Apply a cold compress on the cheek at the area which has been affected. This will help relieve irritation and reduce swelling. If you are unable to replace the tooth, avoid touching the root and store it in milk, saline, or your own saliva. It is vital that you keep it submerged in the solution until you get to your dentist’s office or emergency room.
