What if my child loses a permanent/adult tooth due to trauma?

The best thing to do is to reimplant the tooth (place it back into the socket).  The tooth will have the best success is if the tooth is placed back into the socket within 5 minutes.  If there is debris on the tooth take care to hold the tooth by the crown and not by the root and then gently rinse the tooth off with water or milk.  If you are unable to place the tooth into the socket it is best to store the tooth in milk.  DO NOT store in water.  Follow-up with your dentist immediately in either case as the tooth might require additional treatment.
