Having a tooth knocked out in Molesey

If you have the misfortune to have a tooth knocked out in Molesey for whatever reason, if you act fast, there is a good chance that the tooth can be put back in and save you a hefty dentist’s bill from getting the tooth replaced cosmetically. Once you have overcome the shock and been able to pick your tooth up, it needs to be handled with care and not by the roots. It is important to immerse the tooth in either milk or a saline solution until you can get help from either your own dentist or a hospital if need be. That’s the practical way, but it may well be that you are rowing the Atlantic when the problem arises so you have to take matters into your own hands and put the tooth back in yourself. Again it needs to be clean before you even attempt this and it may be quite a painful exercise, but your tooth will take again in the socket if inserted with care. From the moment you lose the tooth, you’ll have at least 12 hours in which to save the day and your tooth, because after that, the socket will start to seal and the tooth’s root will start to die off. If you need information about this issue, you should contact Mulberry dental care in Walton and who serve the area.
