If a tooth is knocked out, it’s an emergency and it is important to act quickly to increase the chances of being able to save the tooth. Whether the tooth is knocked out in an adult or a child, the steps to take are generally the same.

Step 1: Retrieve the tooth if possible. If the tooth is still intact and can be found, handle it by the top, or crown, avoiding touching the root.

Step 2: Gently rinse the tooth with clean water to remove any dirt or debris. Do not use soap or any other cleaning solution, and do not dry the tooth.

Step 3: If the tooth is a permanent tooth, try to reinsert it into the socket. Bite down gently on a piece of gauze or a clean cloth to keep the tooth in place. If the tooth cannot be reinserted, put it in a container of milk or saliva (if a child is old enough) to keep it moist.
