Broken, Fractured, or Displaced Tooth

If you have a broken, fractured, or displaced tooth, quick action is essential. If the tooth has been knocked out, try placing it back into its socket and seek dental attention promptly. Rinse the mouth of any debris and apply a cold cloth to reduce swelling.

For a fractured tooth, rinse with warm water and use a cold pack for swelling. Ibuprofen may help alleviate discomfort. Minor fractures can be treated by sanding or restoring the tooth if the pulp is undamaged.

For children with a loose primary tooth, gently biting down on an apple or caramel piece might aid in easy separation from the gum. Remember to consult your dentist for proper care and treatment.
