Adult Tooth got knocked out: Time is of the essence! Hold the tooth by the crown (the part you can see when smiling) and gently clean any debris from the root. Put it back in the socket and have your child bite on something soft (paper towel, clean cloth/towel). Go immediately to your dentist. If you need help finding a dentist’s office, we can help! If you can’t put the tooth back in the socket your options are to
- put the tooth in milk
- put the tooth in saliva
You need to get to a dentist right away!
Baby Tooth got knocked out: Don’t put the tooth back in! Control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with gauze/paper towel/etc. Call us or go to your dentist!
