What do I do if my child's tooth is lost?

Time is of the essence when a tooth is knocked out. If a dentist is seen within one hour after an accident, chances are good that the tooth can be re-implanted and saved.

If your child's tooth is knocked out:

  1. Careful rinse the tooth in water. Make sure that you do not touch the root of the tooth with your hands. The root is the portion of the tooth which is usually embedded in the gum and not normally seen.
  2. Attempt to place the tooth back in its socket and secure with a wet wrap. If this is not possible or if you are afraid that your child might swallow the tooth, place it in a glass containing either saliva or milk.
  3. See your dentist immediately.
