Just had a wisdom tooth fall out with no roots attached, just a gaping hole. What do I do until I get to a dentist tomorrow?

  • Crown part of the wisdom tooth has fallen out and roots must be inside the socket. Now donot eat anything from that side so that nothing gets impacted in the hole. Do warm saline rinses and keep the area clean. Go to the dentist in the morning. Dentist will take pano and the root have to be removed surgically otherwise they will cause infection.
