Lost / Knocked out tooth

Lost / Knocked out tooth

If your child loses an adult tooth, try to gently place it back in the socket if you can. If you can't, place it between the child's cheek and gum or, if you're concerned they might swallow it, place it in some milk and call the dentist immediately or take your child to the emergency room. Do not touch the tooth root, which can be easily damaged. Many teeth can be placed back in the socket as long as the child is treated right away.


If your child lost a baby tooth.  DO NOT put the tooth back in the socket.  Apply pressure to where tooth came out and contact your paediatric dentist as soon as possible.
