Dislodged or loose Tooth

If a tooth becomes dislodged or loose

  • See your dentist immediately.
  • Gently bite together to hold the tooth in place.  If the tooth is extruded (hangs down) try to re-position the tooth.
  • If you are in pain, you can apply a cold compress to the outside of the mouth or cheek in the affected area.
  • Take an over-the- counter pain reliever if necessary.
