In the movie, I care a lot, Marla Grayson is tortured and one tooth is punched loose as the result.

She takes that tooth out of her mouth and put it in a jug of chilled milk.

Then what happens to it? The tooth looks like a part of future plot and it is no-where to be seen again.

She visits the dentist that very same night and you see her in the dentist chair having the tooth re-inserted. The scene is at about 1 hour 29 minutes into the runtime.

You see her looking at Fran in bed as she leaves, the time is 2:11 am on the bedside clock. Then you see her waiting with the milk jug outside the dentist office and it is still dark. Finally we see a few seconds of the tooth being re-inserted.

Apparently keeping a tooth in milk can help keep it 'alive' enough to be re-implanted in the mouth if the duration is quite short.

    This is all so clearly shown, that I wonder if there is an alternative version skipping this scene in the netflix area you are in.

    Or the whole thing is only about 1 minute long, so a brief distraction and you could easily miss it.
