What to do if a Tooth is Knocked Out?

What do you do if you or your child has a fall and a tooth is knocked out (we call this an avulsed tooth)? This is truly an emergency.  You need to know that the tooth has the best chance of survival if action is immediate.  Put the tooth in liquid – preferably milk – and get to the dentist immediately.  Milk is compatible with teeth and has essential nutrients and growth factors.

But I have recently read that soy milk is also an excellent medium for the avulsed tooth.  Soy milk is rich in protein, amino acids, vitamins and minerals that are essential for cell nutrition.
