I just want to know;
Is there a way I can clean the hole of a missing tooth?
Im afraid food will get in it, and it will get infected (or whatever else can happen)

Yes, go to a dentist and have them remove any remaining tooth debris. They will put in a couple of dissolving stitches to allow the gum to heal over so food doesn't accumulate in the hole.

More information needed.

The must important thing to ask you is your age. I would be more worried to know why the heck does that tooth fell. I lived with a dentist for almost 6 years and i had learnt something. There is no reason a healthy person should loose a tooth.

Yes the hole can get infected. If the tooth didnĀ“t fell completely there can be pieces of the roots still under the gum that can produce nasty infections. So ask your family or peers for a trustable dentist.

On the meanwhile clean brushing the area gently with a little bit of paste, ingest mostly liquids and soft, and do not hear to any alternative or naturistic treatmets. GO TO A DENTIST.

Ok this detail was very important.

The last "milk" or "decidual" teeth can fall in some kids until the age of 12.

Anyways talk to your parents. A dental check must be done at least once a year.
