Knocked a Tooth Out?

If you knock out a tooth

  • Contact your dentist, or an emergency dentist immediately.
  • ​Retrieve the tooth, hold by the crown (avoid touching the root area) and gently rinse under the cold tap for about 10 seconds to remove any dirt. 
  • Do not scrub or remove any of the attached tissue. 
  • Try to reposition the tooth correctly.  Do not force into place.  Bite on a clean cloth or tissue to help hold in place. For best results, re-implantation should be done within 5 – 10 minutes.
  • If this is not possible, place the tooth in a suitable storage container with milk or preferably a saline solution. 
  • If possible it can be transported in the mouth (keeping it between the molars and the inside of the cheek).  If the patient is very young, this is not advisable; he/she could swallow the tooth.  You could get the patient to spit into a small container and place the tooth in this.
  • Do not let the tooth dry out.
