If you happen to find yourself in the situation of having a tooth knocked out in central Leeds, it can put you in a position of shock and the fact that you have lost a tooth, very angry and annoyed, but did you know if you act quickly, the tooth can actually be saved by putting it back in?
It isn’t the easiest process but it can be done. You must avoid touching the root and ensure it is clean by rinsing in milk or warm salty water and once you have done this, you need to find a dentist immediately.
Of course, that’s all well and good, but the shock of all this may make it difficult to replace in the mouth. In this event, you still have a good 20 hours to get to the dentist or doctor to have it popped back in. the tooth must be kept in either some sort of saline solution or milk- that’s if they can be found on the streets at 3am in the morning- and if not, the tooth can be kept in the mouth until you can get seen.
Surprisingly, the tooth can be saved if you can get immediate treatment and it will sit happy in the gum once more.
