We are going to begin a new weekly series of dental tips. Here is the tip of the week featuring a segment on first aid “dos and dont’s” at CBS’ The Doctors! If a tooth is knocked out, put it in a cup of milk or saliva. The tooth can even be stored under the tongue as long as you don’t think it will be swallowed. Make sure not to wash the tooth off. Very importantly- get to our office ASAP! A tooth can often be put back into the socket if it has been out of the mouth for less than an hour.
