Remain calm. Seek immediate help. Time is critical. Pick up the tooth only by the white part, not the root. If clean replant immediately and have the patient hold the tooth in place. If the tooth is dirty rinse in milk if available, if not briefly in cold water and replant. Do not scrub the root part. If you cannot replant keep the tooth moist by submerging in milk or wrap in plastic wrap or place inside the patient’s mouth alongside the cheek (if a suitable age). Do not store in water. Phone immediately for an emergency appointment. Remember time is critical and quick action will result in the best possible outcome.
