More than 5 million teeth are knocked out every year in children and adults. With proper emergency action, a tooth that has been knocked out of its socket can be successfully replanted and last for years. It's important to see a dentist or endodontist as soon as possible after the tooth is knocked out. Quick action will increase the likelihood of saving the tooth. At the dental roots, a dental clinic in South Delhi and Gurgaon, takes care of any accidental avulsions of teeth.

HERE IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO

1. Pick up the tooth by the crown (the chewing surface) not the root.

Locate the tooth immediately; do not leave it at the site of the accident. The tooth should be handled carefully -- touch only the crown -- to minimize injury to the root.

2. If dirty, gently rinse tooth with water.
  • Do not use soap or chemicals.
  • Do not scrub the tooth.
  • Do not dry the tooth.
  • Do not wrap it in a tissue or cloth.
3. Reposition tooth in socket immediately, if possible.

The sooner the tooth is replaced, the greater the likelihood it will survive. To reinsert, carefully push the tooth into the socket with fingers, or position above the socket and close your mouth slowly. Hold the tooth in place with fingers or by gently biting down on it.

4. Keep tooth moist at all times.

The tooth must not be left outside the mouth to dry. If it cannot be replaced in the socket, put it in one of the following:

  • Emergency tooth preservation kit
  • Milk
  • Mouth (next to cheek)

Regular tap water is not recommended for long-term storage because the root surface cells do not tolerate water for long periods of time.

5. See an endodontist or the nearest available dentist within 30 minutes.

Bring the tooth to a dentist as soon as possible -- ideally, within 30 minutes. However, it is possible to save the tooth even if it has been outside the mouth for an hour or more.

Tips to prevent such injuries
  • Always keep your mouth closed while indulging in any sports activity: this helps you prevent dehydration and also keeps your teeth protected.
  • Always use a sports guard: A sports guard is a product which is customised for your mouth by our dentist in south Delhi. Our dentists make accurate measurements to fabricate a mouth guard for your both upper and lower jaws. A sports guard is the best way to keep our teeth protected while playing your favourite sport.
  • In case of any chipping or little fracture on the tooth, the tooth can be built to its beautiful self by bonding and composite fillings.

Had an awesome session at The Dental Roots Clinic with Dr.Ritika She is a really good professional and a great person! I had a great time during my visit to The Dental Roots clinic. Dr.Dheeraj Setia's team of Doctors are highly professional, they listened to my concerns patiently and after sharing the overview, I had Teeth Whitening treatment done. Dr.Dheeraj Setia's staff followed proper sanitization procedures and ambience of the setup is very pleasing.

Dr.Ritika showed so much care and concern that I forgot that she is my dentist and came back earning a friend in her! I strongly recommend The Dental Roots Clinic
