Avulsed Teeth

Avulsed Teeth

If a tooth is completely knocked out of your mouth, time is of the essence. If this type of injury happens to you, pick up your tooth by the crown, or chewing portion. Try not to touch the root. If the tooth is dirty, gently rinse it with water. Do not use soap or any other cleaning agent. If possible, place the tooth back into its socket. Go to the dentist immediately.

If you cannot put the tooth back in its socket, be sure to keep it moist. The less time the tooth spends drying out, the better the chance of saving the tooth. Solutions to keep your tooth moist are available at local drug stores. You can also put the tooth in milk or a glass of water with only a pinch of salt, or you can simply put it in your mouth between your gum and cheek. Bring your tooth to the dentist immediately.

Avulsed Teeth

If the tooth has been put back in its socket, your dentist may stabilize the tooth with a splint and check for any other facial injuries. If the tooth has not been put back into its socket, your dentist will examine the tooth to determine if it is still intact and check for other facial injuries. Your dentist will clean the tooth carefully and place it gently back into the socket. Your tooth may need to be stabilized with a splint for a period of time. Depending on the stage of root development, your dentist or endodontist may start root canal treatment. A medication may be placed in the tooth followed by a permanent root canal filling at a later date. The length of time the tooth was out of the mouth and the way the tooth was stored before reaching the dentist may influence the type of treatment you receive. You should contact your physician to see if a tetanus booster is necessary.

Our Happy Customers

"What can I say about Dr. Sprague, he is simply THE BEST dentist in the Northern Hemisphere!!!!!!!!!!! What other dentist do you know of that can do a Root Canal and Crown within 1.5 hours on the same visit (Instead of going back 2-3 times)? His prices are reasonable and his work is absolutely flawless! He has even fixed crap dental work from two previous root canals done by two bad dentist. I really cant say enough about Doc Sprague! I love this guy and dont actually mind going to the dentist anymore (Outside of the cost of course). I am moving to Nevada in September, and will actually be coming back to Southern CA just to have him do my major dental work, that's how good he is! Thank you Dr. Sprague!!!!!!!"

Vivian

"Dr. Sprague is an amazing dentist. He is extremely caring and his biggest concern is his patients and their needs. He met me at his office after hours to replace a crown. His pricing is very fair and he is truly a genuine caring physician. I would honestly recommend him to care for anyone's dental needs."
