What to do During a Dental Emergency
If you have a broken or knocked out tooth, it’s important that you do not scrub it clean (doing so can damage tiny fibers that hold it in place) and that you store it properly. Place it in a sealed container, filled with contact solution or milk. Adults can also tuck the tooth fragment inside of their cheek, to keep it coated in saliva (gently rinse the tooth off first.)
Seeing the dentist within the first hour offers the most promising outcome for restoring chipped or knocked out teeth.
