In Case of an Accident
East Bentleigh Dental Group advises all patients to seek emergency dental service as soon as possible, especially in the case of major trauma. To maintain the viability of the affected tooth as you pursue emergency dental repair, we recommend you follow these tips:
- Gently reposition the tooth to its natural alignment using your finger. Do not force it into place and avoid continually playing with it
- Lightly clench your teeth to hold the tooth in place while you seek treatment
- Avoid clenching down hard and chewing
- Do not ingest any hot food or drinks
- In the case that a tooth has been completely knocked out, place it in milk. Avoid scrubbing the root and do not place it in tap water
