What do I do if a tooth falls out?
A knocked out tooth is an emergency, and time is of the essence. Pick up the tooth by the chewing surfaces, avoiding the roots, and gently rinse it under cool running water. If possible, push the tooth back into place and bite down on gauze or a tea bag to hold it in place. Otherwise, submerge it in a glass of milk (never water). Bring the tooth immediately to our office during business hours, or to the nearest emergency dentist after hours. Reattachment is most successful within the first 30 minutes, though it is worth trying up to an hour after the injury.
