If a baby tooth is knocked out, contact Dr. Kane as soon as possible. Do not replant the baby tooth because it can damage the developing permanent tooth.
In regards to permanent teeth, if the tooth is not lost, rinse the tooth gently in cool water. Be careful not to scrub the tooth, and do not use soap to cleanse the tooth. If possible, place the tooth in the socket as soon as possible and hold it in place with a clean washcloth. If you are unable to place the tooth back in the socket, place the tooth in cold milk or saliva. Get to The Children’s Dental Center immediately! Time is critical. The tooth has a much better prognosis if treated immediately.
