Our opening hours are:
Don’t delay – time is critical
Keep calm and find the tooth
Pick up the tooth by the crown (whiter part) and avoid touching the root.
DO NOT hold or rub the root surface or let the tooth dry. This is because the living cell lining the root of the tooth could become damaged and die.
DO NOT put the tooth on ice or keep in water.
DO NOT remove any tissue or gum fragments from the tooth. Try to leave the tooth as is.
DO NOT replant a baby tooth. There is a risk of injury to the underlying adult tooth. In doubt, place the tooth in milk and seek dental advice.
If the tooth is dirty, rinse it in milk. Milk not available? rinse briefly (a few seconds) under cold tap water, NOT in antiseptic.
Put the tooth back into the socket. Use the other teeth as a guide.
To keep the tooth in place either bite on a cloth or use finger pressure. Aluminium foil can be used to help stabilise the tooth.
If UNABLE TO PLACE THE TOOTH IN THE SOCKET, keep moist by following one of these alternatives…
DO NOT STORE IN WATER
