What should I do if my tooth is broken?

 

It may be possible to reattach the pieces to your tooth - only your dentist can tell you for sure. Take the following steps and see your dentist right away. Remember to take the pieces with you.

 

CARE for the injured person:

 

Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean it. Apply gauze to the area and use firm pressure to stop the bleeding. Try to find the chipped or broken tooth pieces right away.

 

When the bleeding stops, apply a cold compress to the injured area to minimize swelling. If bleeding does not stop after 10 minutes of constant, firm pressure, see your dentist or go to the emergency room.

 

CARE for the chipped or broken tooth:

 

Save the tooth's pieces and rinse the pieces and your mouth with warm water.

 

If the tooth's pieces are dirty, place a towel or dishcloth in a sink (so the pieces cannot fall into the drain), and gently rinse them.

 

Place the pieces in a small container and cover them with milk, water with a pinch of salt, or saliva from the injured person. Take it with you to your dentist.

Knocked-out tooth emergency?

 

Call your dentist right away. If the child's baby tooth is completely knocked out, chances are it cannot be re-implanted. If this happens, the missing tooth will be replaced naturally when the child's permanent (adult) tooth grows in.

 

If an adult tooth is knocked out, you have a 1-2-hour window in which your tooth has a chance for re-implantation - only your dentist can tell you for sure. Take the following steps and see your dentist right away. Remember to take your protected tooth with you.

 

CARE for the Injured Person:

 

Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean it. Apply gauze to the area and use firm pressure to stop the bleeding. Try to find the missing tooth right away.

 

When the bleeding stops, apply a cold compress to the injured area to minimize swelling. If bleeding does not stop after 10 minutes of constant, firm pressure, see your dentist or go to the emergency room.

 

Place the tooth in a small container and cover it with milk, water with a pinch of salt, or saliva from the injured person.

 

CARE for the knocked-out tooth:

 

Hold the tooth only by its crown (the enamel, visible portion). If the tooth or root is dirty, place a towel or dishcloth in a sink (so the tooth cannot fall into the drain), and gently rinse the tooth and root but do not scrub it or remove any gum tissue that may still be attached to the root.
