Recover the tooth. Do not touch the tooth roots! Handle the crown only. Gently rinse off dirt and debris with water. Do not scrub or scrape the tooth.
For older children, insert the tooth into its original socket using gentle pressure, or encourage the child to place the tooth in the cheek pouch. For younger children, place the tooth in a glass of milk or saliva. Do not try to put the tooth back in a young child’s mouth, as they may swallow it. Contact your nearby 1st Family Dental location for an emergency appointment and advice.
