Here are the steps to take if your child loses a tooth in an injury.

1. Pick up the tooth by the crown, which will protect any of its remaining roots.

2. Gently rinse the tooth and place it in a container of milk to keep it healthy.

3. Contact us immediately so we can try to reinsert and save the tooth.
