My child has had a fall and broke / knocked out a tooth. What should I do?

Date Posted: 10 October, 2013

TOOTH IS BROKEN
Find the broken piece and immediately place in milk.
See a dentist as soon as possible

TOOTH IS KNOCKED OUT
Find the tooth. Check whether the tooth is a baby or adult tooth.

  • If baby tooth, keep it out of the mouth and see a dentist as soon as possible.
  • If adult tooth, hold it by the crown, use saliva of child or milk, to gently rinse off any dirt from the tooth. Place back in the socket.
  • If can’t, then keep the tooth under child’s tongue or inside their cheek, or place in child’s saliva or milk. See a dentist as soon as possible.
