What to do with a knocked out tooth:
If your toothache is causing you severe pain or has been lingering for days, you should follow these steps:
Pain medication is for consumption only – do not place pain medication against the tooth. This can damage the soft and hard tissues in the mouth.
Find the restoration if possible. Book an appointment with your dentist immediately. If you’ve lost a filling, you can use some sugar-free gum to fill the cavity on the way to the dentist. If you have lost a crown, use a little bit of toothpaste to coat the inside of the crown and place the crown back over the tooth (if possible) on the way to the clinic.
Collect as much of the tooth particles as possible and book your appointment with the dentist.
Apply a cold pack to the area and consider an over the counter anti-inflammatory. Contact your dentist immediately if swelling persists.
