Emergency appointments are available

If you are in pain or a permanent (adult) tooth has been knocked out, you will want to contact us promptly.

What to do if a permanent (adult) tooth is knocked out

When an adult tooth is knocked out, it’s a time-sensitive situation. Follow these steps promptly:

  • Put the tooth in a glass of cool milk, preferably, or water, or wrap it gently in a cool wet cloth

  • Phone our clinic for an emergency appointment

  • If you don’t hear back from us immediately, go to the hospital for treatment, for your tooth

If a baby tooth is knocked out, there is no cause for concern, but it’s still wise to have our dentists care for your child and assess the status of the adult tooth growing in its place.
