Knocked out (avulsed) tooth

When a tooth is completely knocked out of the mouth, it should be put back in place as soon as possible. As the tooth must be clean, it can be gently rinsed without touching the root surface and properly repositioned.

In most cases, people come to a dental clinic so the dentist can place the tooth back in its socket. In this case, the same recommendations prevail regarding the conditions of preservation of the tooth, but the chances of success are diminishing gradually as time passes after the tooth has fallen out.
