What to Do If Your Tooth is Knocked Out

  1. Pick up tooth by the crown (top of tooth) to prevent damage to the roots.
  2. Gently rinse dirt and other debris from tooth.
  3. If possible, place tooth back in socket so tooth doesn’t dry out. If you are unable to put the tooth back in its socket, submerge the tooth in milk.
  4. Call our office or go to the nearest emergency room.

What to Do If You Break Your Tooth

  1. Save all pieces of broken tooth.
