Contact your pediatric dentist as soon as possible. If possible find the tooth, gently rinse it with cool water and a clean paper towel, be sure to NOT wash it with warm soapy water. If possible place tooth back in the socket and hold it in place with a clean paper towel or gauze. If this is not possible place the tooth in a container of milk, saliva, or water.
