If you or a loved one ever finds yourself in the unfortunate situation where a tooth is knocked out, pick it up carefully by the crown (or top) and not by the delicate roots. Gently rinse it off, and place it in milk or wrap it in a damp cloth. If you get to your dentist soon enough, there is a good chance that the tooth can be placed back in your mouth. Don’t hesitate to seek emergency care at our clinic.
