Tooth loss is horrible at any time but if it occurs in an accident in Leeds, you should wise up to the eventuality so that you know what to do and possibly save the tooth. When the accident occurs the maximum time you have to get the tooth back into the socket is 24 hours, but that is really pushing it as by that time, the gap will have started healing itself. Essentially, the tooth needs to be put back in the socket quickly- you can do this yourself, but you should avoid touching the root and the tooth needs to be clean, but that doesn’t involve scrubbing it, just rinsing it in water or milk, then you should get to the dentist as fast as you can. If you cannot get the tooth in, you will need to keep it moist, again in water or milk, until you can see a dentist. The whole point of doing this quickly is to give the nerves on the root of the tooth a chance a chance to join up again with the cells in the gums though the dentist will have to make sure the tooth is secure. However, you never know when these problems will arise and it is difficult to find a dentist at three in the morning. In this scenario, you should get yourself down to A and E.
