My tooth was knocked out; should I see my dentist?

Make an appointment with an emergency dentist as quickly as possible.
It may be possible to reattach the tooth.

If possible, retrieve the tooth. Hold it by the crown (the part that is usually exposed in the mouth), and rinse off the tooth root with water if it’s dirty. Do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments. Never force the tooth into the socket. If it’s not possible to reinsert the tooth in the socket, put the tooth in a small cup of water that contains a pinch of table salt. Bring the tooth with you to your appointment.
