Emergency dentistry advice
For teeth that have been knocked out (avulsed)
If you have lost a tooth and need emergency dental help to stop the bleeding we recommend you apply direct pressure to the bleeding area, biting down on to a piece of gauze may make it easier to apply constant pressure
Please do not pull the tooth out if it is still attached, the attached tissue could be providing a blood supply to the tooth which will help to keep it alive. Place the avulsed tooth in to the patient's mouth (inside their cheek is good) or if possible place the tooth back in to the socket being careful not to touch the root - also be sure to place the tooth back the right way round!
Sometimes it's not possible to put the tooth back in an emergency, if this is the case carefully place it in to a container of milk - this will help to keep it hydrated and increase the chances of the emergency dentists being able to replant it.
