Among the many things we learned was the action to take if a tooth is knocked out:
- Hold by the crown and not the root.
- If you are confident enough and it is clean, gently push the tooth back into the socket.
- If not place on the inside of the cheek or store in milk.
- Most importantly get to your dentist within 90 minutes.
- These actions will give you a good chance to save the tooth!
Dr Gormley also discussed oral hygiene and the effect of eating sugar on acidity and pH within the mouth. We were also advised not to ‘graze’ on food as this feeds the bacteria in the mouth which produce acid. This maintains a low (acidic) pH causing cavities in your enamel.
Our sincere thanks to Dr Gormley for a great talk and getting us out of a test on Diet and Digestion!
