If you knock a tooth out, this is considered a dental emergency. Whether or not you can save your tooth depends on how quickly you act, so it is crucial you know what to do in this emergency situation.
You should call your usual dental clinic immediately to get booked in for an emergency appointment. If you aren’t registered at a dental clinic, call NHS 111 for advice on where you can get urgent dental care. If you are in the Kettering area, we are accepting new patients! Contact us to register at our surgery.
If you have lost a tooth:
Once at the dentist, your dentist will clean the tooth and move it into the correct position in the gum. To secure the tooth in place, they will use a splint to fix the tooth to the surrounding teeth. You will be invited back after a few weeks to get the splint removed. If you can’t find the tooth that was knocked out or the tooth is badly damaged, you will have the option to have your tooth replaced with a false tooth. Options include a denture, a bridge or a dental implant.
Have you knocked out a tooth? Call us now on 01536 512 046 to get an emergency appointment.Back to Blog
