Tips for Taking Care of Your Tooth after a Sudden Emergency
While we will strive to promptly answer your questions as soon as possible, you should take steps to care for your teeth while waiting to hear back from your dentist. One crucial tip to remember is that if you have lost any teeth, you need to keep them moist and submerged in liquid so that the tooth does not rot and that it may be possible to reattach the tooth, so long as the root is not damaged.
If you can, try to gently put the tooth into the socket where it came from. If this isn’t possible, you could potentially hold in your cheek or gum, but watch out that you do not swallow it. Submerging it in a glass of milk is another option as well.
