Broken Tooth:

Gently clean dirt from the injured area with warm water. Place cold compresses on the face, in the area of the injured tooth, to decrease swelling. Take painkiller medication, if necessary. Go to the dentist immediately.


Rinse the mouth with warm water to clean it out. Use dental floss to remove any food that might be trapped between the teeth. Do not place aspirin on the aching tooth or gum tissues. Take painkiller medication. See your dentist as soon as possible.

Knocked-Out Tooth:

If the tooth is dirty, rinse it gently in running water. Do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments. Gently insert and hold the tooth in its socket. If this is not possible, place the tooth in a cup of milk, or when milk is not available, in a cup of cool water. Go immediately to your dentist (within 30 minutes if possible). Don’t forget to bring the tooth!
