Life happens, and as such traumatic injuries to the teeth are something that could happen to anyone for any number of reasons. Should you ever have a tooth knocked out however, it’s vital to salvage the tooth if possible and see your dentist immediately.
Distilled water, contact lens solution and milk are all considered acceptable liquids to transport a tooth as they help to preserve the delicate, soft tissue surrounding the root of the tooth.
Also note, it’s important to have your dentist replant the tooth in its socket within thirty to sixty minutes, if not immediately. Otherwise, the possibility of salvaging the tooth may be lost completely.
