Losing a tooth can be distressing, but we’re on hand to help out in an emergency. Whether it’s possible to salvage the lost tooth, or you’ve lost the tooth and you’re ready to explore replacement options, we’re confident you’ll leave us with a smile on your face.
Saving a lost tooth
In some cases, when a tooth is dislodged, it is possible to save it. If you still have the tooth, and it’s only just fallen out, hold the tooth in your mouth between the cheek and the gums, or place it in a glass of milk or tepid water. If you touch the tooth, take care to avoid the root and hold only the crown section. Call us and we’ll see you as quickly as possible. If it is possible to save the tooth, your dentist will re-implant it into the socket. If it’s not viable to save the tooth, we have other options available, and our dentists will explain how we can help.
