Tooth knocked out? Try this.

If you find yourself in an unfortunate incident and your tooth gets knocked out, what do you do? Well, try this for a start: Rinse the tooth off very gently to make sure it is clean. Do not scrub the tooth or remove any tissue that is attached to it. Be sure to place a towel or wash cloth in the sink so that it does not go down the drain.

If you can, gently place the tooth back into the socket. If this is not possible, place the tooth in a small container or cup of milk. You will need to take the tooth with you and get to your dentist immediately.
