What to do if a Tooth is Knocked Out?
- If you still have the tooth. The sooner a knocked-out tooth is reimplanted the more likely it is to embed itself back into the gum. If you don’t want to be left with a gap, make an emergency appointment to see us and follow this advice:
- Handle the tooth by the white bit at the top (the crown) and avoid touching the root.
- Do not scrape or brush the tooth.
- If the tooth is dirty, rinse it for no more than 10 seconds with milk and try to put the tooth back into its socket in your mouth as soon as possible. Do not rinse the tooth with alcohol.
- When the tooth is back in its socket, bite down onto a clean piece of material (such as a handkerchief) to keep it in place.
- If you cannot reimplant the tooth, hold it between your cheek and gum until you manage to see a dentist, or store the tooth in a clean container and cover it with milk or a small amount of your saliva.

What should I do if I have facial swelling?
Facial swellings can be dental in origin, it can be caused by a dental infection. Contact us immediately for diagnosis and to receive treatment or antibiotics.
What to do if I Lose a Crown?
Crowns are usually made of ceramic material, keep your crown safe and call us. Most of the time a crown can be re-cemented into position but this should be done as soon as possible to avoid damage to the crown or the exposed tooth. Contact us immediately.
