What do I do if my child knocks out a tooth?

Answer: For a knocked-out permanent or adult tooth, keep it moist at all times. If you can, try placing the tooth back in the socket without touching the root. If that’s not possible, place it in between your cheek and gums, in milk, or use a tooth preservation product that has the ADA Seal of Acceptance. (Author:ADA)

Then, get to Dr. Tomlinson’s office right away.
