A tooth avulsion – meaning your tooth was completely knocked out – is considered a traumatic dental injury that requires tooth avulsion emergency treatment.

What Should I Do If My Tooth Is Knocked Out?

Knocked-out teeth are often caused by a fall, accident, or hard impact. You must act quickly to save your tooth and prevent further damage.

1. Do Not Touch The Tooth’s Root

A tooth’s root is sensitive and easily damaged. Carefully pick up the tooth by the crown.

2. Rinse The Tooth

Gently rinse the tooth with water or milk to remove dirt. Do not scrub the tooth or use soap.

3. Place The Tooth In Its Socket

If possible, try putting the tooth back in its socket. Carefully bite down on a paper towel or clean cloth to hold it in place.

4. Other Ways To Store The Tooth

If you’re unable to get the tooth in its socket, put it in milk, saline, or clean water with a pinch of salt. You can also keep the tooth between your gums and cheek.

5. See An Emergency Dentist

Look for the best dentist in Las Vegas who knows how to treat an avulsed tooth.

Avulsed Tooth Treatment

A skilled dentist will know what to do to save your tooth and provide emergency dental care:

  • Examining the area: The dentist will assess the damage and determine how to move forward
  • Positioning the tooth: If you reinserted your tooth, they will check that the position is correct. If you did not place the tooth back in its socket, they will numb the area and do this.
  • Splinting the tooth: After the avulsed tooth is placed in its socket, you’ll need a splint to hold the tooth in place for several days
  • Performing a root canal: Your dentist will determine the tooth’s stage of root development and may perform a root canal

Do I Need Root Canal Treatment For A Tooth Avulsion?

Your dentist may recommend a root canal after the tooth is replanted. This involves removing the pulp tissue and replacing it with medicated filling to disinfect the root and promote resorption. After some time, the dentist fills the tooth with permanent root canal filling.
