Injured teeth

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
