When your child has a knocked-out baby tooth in Ventura, it’s important to remain calm and take a deep breath. While it’s not ideal for your child to lose a baby tooth before their permanent tooth is ready to come in, prompt dental care will ensure that the knocked-out tooth doesn’t negatively impact their long-term oral health.
What to know
If your child knocks their baby tooth out, rinse their mouth with cold water to remove debris and blood in their mouth. Gently apply pressure to the tooth socket with a clean cloth or gauze. Or, have them bite a washcloth soaked in cold water; this will stop the bleeding and reduce swelling and pain from their injury.
How we treat a knocked-out baby tooth
We don’t reattach a knocked-out baby tooth; instead, we may place a space maintainer in your child’s mouth to hold the tooth’s space until your child’s permanent tooth is ready to come in.
When to seek care
While a knocked-out baby tooth requires dental care, it’s rarely a dental emergency. Baby teeth have short roots that make them easier to knock out. Unless you’re unable to stop the bleeding in your child’s mouth or your child is experiencing intense pain, you don’t need to seek emergency dental care for a knocked-out baby tooth. Instead, call us and we’ll schedule an appointment to confirm that there’s no damage to their gums or other mouth tissues.
