If a tooth is knocked out it is important to receive treatment as soon as possible. There is a 1 hour window to save the tooth. Follow these tips:
-Keep the patient calm
-Pick the tooth up by the crown (the white part). Avoid touching the root.
-If dirty, rinse the tooth briefly under cold water.
-Try to replant the tooth if possible and bite on a napkin to hold it in place
-If placing the tooth back inside the socket is not possible, place the tooth underneath the patient’s tongue for transport. If the patient is young place the tooth in a glass of salt water or milk.
-Seek dental care as soon as possible
