If a tooth has been chipped and is sensitive and/or sharp then applying a sensitive toothpaste is advised.

If a baby tooth has been knocked out, do not attempt to put it back in. Clean the area, bite on a clean handkerchief or towel for 20 minutes. If it is bleeding, give the child age appropriate pain relief medicine and keep to a soft diet until the area has healed.

If an adult tooth has been knocked out handle the tooth by its crown (the white part), avoid touching the root and do not try to clean the tooth at home, call the surgery for an urgent appointment. Store the tooth for transportation in milk (not water). Alternatively transport the tooth in the mouth, keeping it between molars and the inside of the cheek.

Please telephone for further advice.
