Knocked-Out Permanent Tooth


Hold the tooth by the crown and rinse the root with water if it is dirty.  Do not scrub the tooth or remove any attached tissue fragments. If possible, gently insert and hold the tooth in tis socket with a clean washcloth or gauze and take your child to the pediatric dentist or emergency room as soon as possible.  If this isn't possible, put the tooth in a container with milk, saliva or water and seek care as soon as you possibly can.  Don't forget to take the tooth with you!
