And a Trivia Tuesday Answer Explained:
One of our #triviatuesday questions from last week came to us because a patient of ours had an adult tooth knocked out while riding bikes. Fortunately their parents did the right thing and placed the tooth back in the mouth within 30 minutes ??. Doing this significantly improves the chances of saving the tooth.
If this ever happens to you, pick the adult tooth up by the crown ? (not the root) and wash it briefly under cold water (do not wipe it off), and place it back in its socket in the mouth. Bite on a cloth or napkin to help keep it in place, and see your dentist as soon as possible.
If you are unable to put the tooth back in the mouth right away, place the tooth in a glass of #milk and head to an emergency clinic or dental office so a dentist can place it back in the mouth. They may also place a splint or wire to help hold the tooth in a passive position. The prognosis is always guarded with a tooth that is knocked out, but the sooner you can get it back in the mouth, the better ??#spreadtheword #saveatooth #nowyouknow #dentaltrauma
