FAQ for Urgent Teeth Issues
What is the most common reasons for dental urgent care?
The most common dental emergency is a knocked out tooth. When it happens, it is crucial to save the tooth so your dentist can reattach it. Make sure to keep the loose teeth moist and ensure the root is intact so that Dr. Manali Patel DDS will be able to successfully re-attach the tooth.
What if a tooth gets knocked out in an accident?
If the tooth gets knocked out in an accident, first clean the tooth with milk or saline then put the tooth back in the socket as soon as possible. See your dentist as soon as you can to secure the tooth. This should be done within an hour of the injury. If the tooth cannot be put back in, put it in a cup of milk or saline solution to keep it moist. Do not put the tooth in water as plain water can damage the delicate cells. If milk or saline is not available, place the tooth in the patient's mouth to keep it moist.
