Keep tooth in mouth

Unusual, but possibly useful, dental advice: If a tooth gets knocked out, put it back in your mouth, between your cheek and gum. This will help to keep the tooth alive. And if you can then get to a dental surgeon within 90 minutes, it might be possible to replant the tooth.

What if you stick it back in its socket? Seems that would be even better.

Confirmed. I had a double root canal. When I was allowed to eat again I found myself chewing on a molar. I popped it back into its socket and it took hold.

You have to be quick, though. But yeah, it's been known to work.
