A knocked out permanent tooth is one of the most serious dental emergencies. If this happens, it is important to act quickly to save the tooth . Handle the tooth carefully and avoid touching the root, as it can be easily damaged. If the tooth is dirty, rinse it with milk while holding it by the crown. If milk is unavailable, rinsing with water can also work. Do not wipe it with a cloth, as this could damage the tooth. Keep the tooth moist by placing it into a glass of milk. An alternative to this is placing it in the mouth, between the cheek and gum. After securing the tooth in a safe place, get to the dentist as quickly as possible.
