    Advice for a knocked out tooth

    • Hold it by the tooth, not the root.
    • Lick the tooth/root clean if it's dirty, or rinse in milk (not water).
    • Push the tooth back into the hole it came out of (adult teeth only – never try to re-insert a baby tooth).
    • Place a clean handkerchief over the tooth and gently bite together.
    • Call for dental advice immediately.

    • If you are unable to replace the tooth in the socket then store the tooth inside of the cheek i.e. in saliva or store in milk NEVER WATER. Seek urgent advice from a dentist.
