Knocked-out baby tooth:

DO NOT put the tooth back into the socket. Make an appointment with Dr. Fran to rule out any additional injury.

Knocked-out adult tooth

Hold the tooth by the white crown portion, rinse the whole tooth thoroughly under cold running water, and put it back into the socket. Apply pressure by biting into a clean cloth or gauze. If you are unable to put the tooth back into the socket, keep it in cold milk or inside the child’s mouth – under the tongue or in the cheek to prevent swallowing. Either way, call the office immediately to book an emergency appointment with Dr. Fran.
