Treatment for Avulsed Teeth
If your tooth has been knocked out of the mouth and you still have it, the tooth may be placed back into the socket if you see us within an hour. An avulsed tooth is a true dental emergency and can possibly be replaced if extensive damage to the tissue, nerves, and blood vessels has not occurred. We strongly encourage patients to avoid touching the root, and to place the tooth in a cup of milk or in saliva until arriving at the office.
Lost Fillings and Crowns
If you have lost a filling or a crown has become loose, your teeth may be very sensitive to pressure and temperature changes. Tooth decay can be another reason crowns become loose, as the decay changes the shape of the teeth. It is important to make an appointment as soon as possible to get the treatment needed to restore function and appearance to your mouth.
Cracked or Broken Teeth
Teeth are prone to cracks, breaks, and fractures. In many cases, these cracks are painless, but certain patients experience some degree of pain and tooth sensitivity. If you have a cracked or fractured tooth, come in and see us as soon as possible.
