Need a dentist urgently?

We are here for you 5 days a week.

Call us.


If you are not a patient with us, we will of course help you with your complaint, but you must register as a new patient.

Urgency outside our business hours?

Then call the Oral Care Clinic at OLVG West in Amsterdam.

Tooth out! Now what?
Follow these steps:


Grasp the tooth by the top-side (do not touch the root) and rinse it under cold water for 10 seconds. Do not dry off.


Try to put the tooth back in place. It does not matter if the tooth does not fit perfectly. If that fails, keep it in a cup with your own saliva.


Bite down on a cotton ball or gauze to hold the tooth in place or do so by hand and see a dentist immediately


Is it a baby tooth? Children up to age 5 often have only baby teeth.
