Knocked a tooth out?
Don't panic! Here's what to do to help save your tooth:
Step 1: Pick the tooth up by the crown only (do not touch the root)
Step 2: Lick the tooth clean if it is dirty, or rinse it in water
Step 3: Stick the tooth back in position (adult teeth only)
Never try to re-insert a baby tooth
Step 4: Bite on a handkerchief to hold it in place and go straight to the dentist
