A knocked-out adult tooth can usually be saved by putting it back in place or in milk as soon as possible, before seeing a dentist.
It's best to get help as quickly as possible.
111 will tell you what to do. They can tell you the right place to get help if you need to see someone.
Get an emergency dentist appointment
If you have a dentist, ask them for an emergency appointment.
If they're closed, their phone message may say what to do.
If you do not have a dentist, find a dentist near you and ask if you can have an emergency appointment.
If you put the tooth back in, the dentist will check it's in the right place and move it if they need to.
If you brought the tooth in milk or saliva, they'll clean it and put it back in.
They'll then fix the tooth to the teeth either side of it to hold it in place (splinting).
You'll probably need to go back after a couple of weeks to have the splint removed.
If you cannot find the tooth or the dentist's not able to save it, it can normally be replaced with a false tooth.
You may have to pay for your appointment and treatment.
