Following these steps can help save a broken or knocked-out tooth:
Recover the tooth:- It is important to handle the crown and not the root. The chewing part of your teeth is where you can see them when they’re in their proper position-this means that touching anything besides what looks like the gum line or “crown” of an avulsed tooth could contaminate it while also causing additional damage to any tissue still attached which may need restoration later on.
Taking care of the teeth:-If the tooth has become contaminated with dirt, rinse it gently by dipping the tooth in milk or tap water. Be careful not to disturb any tissue clinging to the root of your dislodged tooth as you go about this process. NEVER clean a dislodged tooth using soap and do not scrub or dry it either while doing so because these actions will remove and destroy all living residual tissues necessary for reimplantation purposes!
The tooth must be repositioned (if possible):- Put your tooth back in its rightful place as soon as possible to give it the best chance of healing. The natural gum and root tissues will start bonding with each other right away once you put it back into the jaw, so don’t waste any time getting that thing home!
Retain the tooth if it cannot be repositioned:-If the tooth cannot be restored immediately, it is better to keep the tooth moist until then. Keep the knocked-out adult tooth in a glass of milk, and it will help preserve all of its cells and tissue. If possible, holding a baby’s tooth in place within their mouth can also work well as this helps maintain moisture levels for the preservation process.
