Any trauma to the teeth should be assessed by a dentist as soon as possible, however in the meantime:
1. Find the tooth and rinse it to remove any dirt
2. Place the tooth either in saliva or milk or keep it in your mouth between your
check and gum or under your tongue
3. Get to the dentist as the tooth has a better chance of being placed back
successfully if done as soon as possible
At Terrigal Dental, we welcome emergency patients. If you have an incident of dental trauma, give us a call on 4384 2101 and we will fit you in ASAP.
