Man Loses Tooth In Curb Side Brawl

A curb side robbery took more than just a wallet

Over the weekend a man was jumped by three strangers who stole the man’s wallet. In the commotion, the victim collided with one of the thieves – losing his tooth.

Tooth myth busted…

Many Australians believe that once an adult tooth is knocked out, it cannot be repaired. That is actually not true. The tooth can indeed be repaired, it just needs to be recovered quickly, handled with care and taken to the nearest dentist.

What to do if you lose a tooth

The most important thing, obviously, is to find the missing tooth. Once found, be sure to handle the tooth by the crown and not the root; the root is easily damaged and will be difficult to repair if not handled correctly. It is then wise to rinse with saline or milk, or under gentle running water to ensure the tooth is free of dirt.

This may come as a surprise, but the best thing to do in the case of tooth loss is to put the tooth back in the mouth of the adult patient or store the tooth in a container of milk. This will help keep the root wet and allow it to soak up proteins and sugars that keep the cells growing.

To the dentist!

Once clean and safe, book an appointment with us at Millennium Dental in Sydney so we can restore your tooth to its former glory! It is important that you reach a dentist within 30 minutes after your tooth has been knocked out, this can mean the difference between saving your tooth!

At Millennium Dental we work under the paradigm that patient comfort comes first, and we strive to bring you the best smile possible while keeping you relaxed and content.
