Permanent Teeth It is possible that a chipped tooth or a minor fracture can wait until the pediatric dentist’s normal hours of operation or when you can be fitted into the schedule. If a tooth becomes completely dislodged and it is recovered, handle the tooth as little as possible. Prior to the trip to the dentist’s office, try and place the tooth back in its socket while gently biting down on a moistened gauze or a wet tea bag. If the tooth cannot be held in the socket, rinse the tooth of all visible dirt and place it in either a glass of cold milk or saliva until you reach the dentist. It is also beneficial to gently apply a cold compress on the tooth’s socket.
