Emergency Dentist Port Macquarie

  1. Sporting Injuries and Dental Trauma

If you need advice about a knocked out tooth, fractured teeth or a displaced tooth or displaced teeth then the best source of information is the Dental Trauma App. (see links below) In the meantime, if you need advice about a tooth that is knocked out then it should be re-implanted, after cleaning, as quickly as possible. If you can put the tooth back in its socket within 5 minutes then there is a high chance of success.

Instructions for re-implantation

  • Pick up the tooth by the crown (the white shiny part) The root is likely to not look shiny and be a little bit bloody.
  • Clean the tooth but do not touch the root or scrape it to clean it.
  • Clean the root by washing with plain milk or Hank’s Balanced Salt Solution if it is available
  • Alternately have the patient clean the tooth in their own mouth with their own saliva. Try not to touch the root with the other teeth.
  •  After cleaning the root push the tooth back into the socket.
  • If it is not possible to relocate the tooth then store it in Hank’s Balanced Salt Solution or plain milk or in the patient’s mouth under their tongue
  • Get help from a nearby dentist or Hospital Emergency Department (CLICK HERE) as soon as possible
