The first thing to consider about trauma to the teeth is prevention. If your child is playing contact sports, he or she should be wearing a mouthguard. That said, accidents do happen. If your child knocks out a permanent tooth, a timely response is very important. Call your dentist to let them know what happened. Find the tooth, hold it by the crown (not the root) and rinse it off. Do not rub the root or scrub it. Try to put the tooth back into its socket and hold it in place. If this is something you can’t do, you want to store it in milk or sterile saline solution. If you don’t have either of these, the tooth can be stored in the cheek (don’t swallow!) until you get to the dentist.
