Most knocked out teeth can be re-inserted, but you have to see the dentist

Most knocked out teeth can be re-inserted, but you have to see the dentist  

A recent study from the University of Southern California showed that children with poor dental health may suffer academically. It's not just tooth decay, either, there are many other dental problems that can affect kids. For example, according to Oral Health Connections, there were more than 5 million teeth knocked out in the U.S. and Canada this year, and most of these incidents happened in schools.

An estimated 90 percent of these teeth can be saved if children can be quickly brought to the dentist and the tooth is handled properly. This means that the root is not touched, and the tooth is immediately re-inserted into a child's mouth, or put in a glass of milk and taken to the dentist.

"The loss of 51 million school hours a year is devastating to our school children and anything that can be done to prevent this should be done," said Paul Krasner, D.D.S., professor of Dentistry at Temple University School of Dentistry. "Missing teeth during the volatile school years can be psychologically devastating."

The American Dental Association states that if a tooth is knocked out it's important to go to the dentist as soon as possible, even if it is re-inserted.
