1. Save the tooth that has been knocked out and bring it to the dental office as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the less chance there will be to fix the tooth.
  2. Hold the tooth by the top crown (white part), not the bottom root (yellow part).
  3. The greatest chance that the tooth is able to be saved, is to PLACE THE TOOTH BACK IN THE SOCKET where the tooth fell out of. Try your best to put it level with the rest of the teeth. You can bite down on gauze or a tissue to keep it in place.
  4. If the above option does not work, the tooth can also be brought to your dentist by, placing the tooth in a container of dairy milk or holding the tooth between your lower lip and gum or under your tongue.
  5. A cold compress on the outside of your mouth, as well as pain relief medications such as Tylenol and Advil can be used to help ease the pain.
