 TOOTH EMERGENCY SUGGESTIONS 

 

 

If a tooth is knocked completely out of its socket, there are steps that can be taken to promote the possibility of successfully returning it to the mouth:

 

  • Teeth that are knocked out will survive best if they are kept moist and not allowed to dry more than an hour
  • Place tooth in transport media (such as locking plastic bag) in  milk, saline solution or saliva.
  • Contact Dr. Murphy at (440)892-8008

For future use: Add powdered milk or salt and clean bottled water  to your Emergency Kit. This can help in the availability of milk or saline solution.  Add 1 teaspoon of powdered milk to 4 ounces of water or 1/2 teaspoon of salt to 8 ounces of water. 

                                                       

If the tooth is still connected to the socket:

 

·        Keep the area clean

·        Contact Dr. Murphy at (440)892-8008 as soon as possible
