Unfortunately knocking out teeth does happen; whereby during a sporting activity or some other trauma a tooth will be knocked out, also called an ‘avulsed’ tooth. It is important to see a dentist as soon as possible for the best results. If it is more than 30 minutes before you can get to a dentist it is best to replace the tooth in the socket where it has come from. The most important thing is to ensure that you do not touch the root of the tooth.
Hold the tooth by the end that you would normally see in the mouth. Only wash if dirty and for no more than 10 seconds, very gently. Obviously only replace the tooth if you are confident you have it the right way around- seek a dentist straight away.
