If a Tooth is Knocked Out

The sooner the tooth is put back in place the better; 90% success rate if reinserted under 15 minutes, 50% success rate if 30 minutes and less than 10% if over an hour.

If you are unable to see a dentist soon, rinse off the tooth with cold milk and have a capable person push tooth back into place.

If you can get to a dentist soon then pick up tooth by white, shinny, bulbous surface. Store tooth in cold milk or room temperature milk, cold milk preferred, and head to your dentist.
