An avulsed tooth is one that has been completely knocked out of its socket. With this injury, the first hour afterward is critical. During this time we have a better chance of saving the tooth. The chance of saving the tooth decreases with each passing hour.

After the tooth has been knocked out, recover the tooth, making sure to hold it by the crown (top) and not the root end. Rinse, but do not clean or handle the tooth more than necessary. Reinsert the tooth in the socket and hold it in place using a clean piece of gauze or cloth. If the tooth cannot be reinserted, carry it in a cup containing milk or water. Because time is essential, see a dentist immediately. He or she will reinsert the tooth, and after 1-2 weeks, you will need endodontic therapy.
