Having an accident of any kind is never fun. It’s not just the pain, it’s the shock of suddenly finding oneself face down and covered in blood after a long, slow spin through the air. Whether it’s a sports accident or something else, there are a few micro-seconds of disbelief before panic can set in. If teeth have exited the mouth, there is also a time limit on getting to the emergency dentist in Beaconsfield if the teeth are going to be saved and reunited with their jawbone.

Save the number

The last thing anyone wants to have to do when there has been an accident is use the logical part of the brain to remember things like the name of the dental practice to book an appointment with the emergency dentist in Beaconsfield. Anyone who regularly engages in activities that could end in a face-plant or other kind of impact that can cause teeth to leave the mouth in a hurry, should keep the number of the nearest emergency dentist in their phone, under Emergency Dentist. Various clinics offer this service, including Garden View Dental Care.

Ring the number

It’s probably best if the person who is sitting dribbling blood into their hands does not try and do the ringing up, but a colleague or friend can. It’s important to tell the emergency dentist in Beaconsfield that the person has lost teeth and needs to get them put back in. Ask for the earliest possible appointment. There is a 2-hour window between losing teeth and being able to put them back in.

Collect up the teeth

Pick the teeth up by their crowns and not the roots. It’s important to keep any fleshy fibres intact as these will connect the teeth back into the jawbone. The best way to clean the teeth is with spit. If possible, put them back into their sockets. If not, store them in milk. On no account let them dry out or store them in tap water. Both will kill them.

Get to the emergency dentist in Beaconsfield

With any luck the teeth will go back in. Otherwise, it will be time to talk about restoration options.
