What to do if you knock out a tooth

Act quickly, within 30 minutes, and visit the nearest dentist or endodontist.

  1. Pick up the tooth by the crown (the chewing surface) NOT the root.
  2. If dirty, gently rinse the tooth with water. 
  3. Reposition the tooth in the socket immediately, if possible.
  4. Keep the tooth moist at all times.
  5. See an endodontist or dentist within 30 minutes of the injury.

Protect Your Lips with SPF Lip Balm

A winning smile has another component other than healthy teeth: Don’t forget about those luscious lips! If you’re spending time in the sun, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends protecting your lips with a sunblock for lips that has an SPF of at least 15. Look for a broad-spectrum product that guards against both UVA and UVB rays.
