How can we help when a person’s tooth is accidentally knocked out?
First and foremost, rush to a dentist with your knocked out tooth stored in milk or saliva. Immediate reinsertion and immobilisation is done.
How we manage….
Tooth should be reinserted within a few hours of injury, it should be cleaned with saline, then placed in storage medium. Root surface should not be touched. Milk is preferred storage medium. Saline can also be used if milk is not available. Socket is irrigated with saline and local anaesthetic used to provide analgesia, before reinserting the tooth. After reinserting the tooth is splinted. The patient is advised not to eat or drink anything hot or cold, until definitive care.
So in case of a knocked out tooth, rush to us- Kamala Dental Speciality Hospital, which is located near to many primary and secondary schools.
