How to Save Your Tooth

The weather here in Lakewood this past week has definitely brought us into fall! While the weather won't typically knock out your teeth, do you know what to do if you fall and knock out a tooth? Knowing what to do if your tooth falls out in an emergency can make the difference between saving and losing your tooth!

For a knocked-out permanent or adult tooth, keep it moist at all times.  If you can, try placing the tooth back in the socket without touching the root. If that's not possible, place it in between your cheek and gums, in milk, or use a tooth preservation product that has the ADA Seal of Acceptance.  Then, get to your dentist's office right away.

For your convenience, all of our dentists are available after hours during an emergency. This helps ensure that you will receive excellent care from your dentist any time an emergency strikes!
