Tooth knocked out
Whatever the circumstances, if your tooth is knocked out you should seek emergency dental help immediately - the quicker you are treated the greater the chance of saving the tooth.
When handling the tooth, hold it by the crown (the top bit) and not the root.
Do not rinse or clean it - either hold it in your cheek (not recommended for children) or put it in a glass of milk.
