Teeth

Baby Teeth
If knocked out or broken, apply clean gauze to control bleeding and call the pediatric or family dentist.

Permanent Teeth
If knocked out, handle the tooth by the top and not the root (the part that would be in the gum). If dirty, rinse gently without scrubbing or touching
the root. Do not use any cleansers. Use cold running water or milk. Place the tooth in clean water or milk and transport the tooth with the child when seeking emergency care. Call and go directly to the pediatric or family dentist or an emergency department. If the tooth is broken, save the pieces in milk and call the pediatric or family dentist right away. Stop bleeding using gauze or a cotton ball in the tooth socket and have the child bite down.
