Please call our office as soon after the accident as possible, and we will see your child immediately if necessary. If a baby tooth is knocked out, do not replace it. If a permanent tooth is knocked out, rinse it gently, but DO NOT touch the root. If possible, reinsert the tooth in the socket. If this is not possible, keep the tooth moist (place in milk if possible) and call our office immediately. The first 30-60 minutes are critical to saving the tooth.
Children are frequently subject to accidents. In order to accommodate an injured child, our schedule may be delayed. Please accept our apologies ahead of time should this happen during your child’s appointment.
