What should I do if my tooth is knocked out or my child's tooth is knocked out?
When a tooth is completely knocked out (avulsed), time becomes crucial. We strongly recommend reaching out to your dentist or endodontist without delay. It's important not to rinse the avulsed tooth with water. Instead, the best way to preserve the tooth until your appointment is to keep it in milk or clear Pedialyte. If you can, try to avoid touching the root of the tooth. Rest assured, we're dedicated to making every effort to successfully re-implant your tooth, and we'll provide follow-up treatment if necessary
What do I do if my tooth cracks during an injury?
Depending on the extent of the crack, the tooth's nerve might be exposed, which could manifest as a small pink or red spot where the tooth broke. Rest assured, we're here to assess the fracture and recommend the most suitable treatment to preserve your tooth's health. In some cases, when the nerve is exposed due to an injury, either a full or partial root canal treatment may be necessary. Our team is dedicated to ensuring you receive the care you need.
I had a prior tooth trauma, and I'm now experiencing pain and a change in tooth color. What should I do?
The long-term effects of dental trauma may not become apparent immediately after the incident. In some cases, a tooth can deteriorate or become infected years later. Changes in tooth color, heightened sensitivity to heat, or experiencing swelling and throbbing pain in a previously injured tooth are potential signs of an underlying issue. It's crucial to take action promptly. Don't hesitate to reach out to your endodontist or dentist for a thorough evaluation and timely treatment. Your oral health is our top priority, and we're here to help you maintain a healthy smile.
