What should I do when I lose a tooth?

1
Pick the tooth up by the crown (shining white part normally visible in the mouth) and avoid touching the root.
2
Rinse the root off under cold running water for approximately 10 seconds or lick the tooth clean as best you can.
3
Carefully put the tooth back in its original socket. Don’t worry if the tooth doesn’t fit perfectly – that’s okay.
4
Bite down on a piece of gauze or cotton wool to hold the tooth in place and go to the emergency dentist immediately.
