What to do if you knock out a tooth

What do you do if you knock out a tooth?

Act fast:  if the tooth is dirty, rinse it with water
Pop the tooth back in but, not touching the root
Reposition the tooth in its socket
DO NOT re-implant a baby tooth
                 Visit the dentist or your local Emergency Department immediately.
