What should I do if I’ve knocked out a tooth?

Injuries can happen to your teeth and result in you having a smile like a hockey player. This can be embarrassing and you are likely looking for a solution. If you or someone you love has a knocked-out tooth and needs help, please watch this video by our Calgary dentist Dr. Arash Ravanbakhsh, and then give us a call.

Sometimes people knock out their teeth and need help with it. Try and keep your tooth in some sort of liquid medium like a glass of milk or, if it’s clean and doesn’t have debris on it, you can stick it under your tongue and bring it over. Depending on the condition and how long it’s been since the tooth got knocked out, it can get replanted. Bring your tooth in and try and get to the dentist as soon as possible.

Having a gap in your smile from having a tooth knocked out can be very embarrassing. If you have a tooth that got knocked out and you need help right away, give our office a call for a same-day appointment. If we are able to treat you soon enough we can help you preserve your natural tooth and prevent the need for an alternative tooth replacement.
