Broken & Displaced Tooth Care

Broken & Displaced Tooth Treatment & Care Services

Breaking a tooth is one of the most common dental emergencies. In most cases, a broken or displaced tooth is not a serious emergency. It does require fast action, especially if the goal is to save the natural tooth. It is possible to reinsert a tooth even if it is completely knocked out of the mouth, but the tooth must be carefully protected.

What Should You Do If A Tooth Is Displaced?

Find the tooth and rinse any dirt or debris from its surface. You should also rinse your mouth of blood and debris. Next, try to place the tooth into the socket. If necessary, hold it in place and apply a cold compress near the injury. This not only keeps the tooth and gum intact, it helps with pain and swelling. Once the tooth is temporarily placed and the immediate emergency has passed, contact your dentist. If a tooth is knocked out of your mouth and you are unable to place it back into your mouth, your goal should be to protect the tooth until you reach the dentist office. Hold the tooth by the crown (the top) and put it into a container of warm milk, saline solution, or your saliva.

What If My Dentist Office Is Not Open?

If a tooth has been displaced, you should not wait to get medical care. Unfortunately, not all dental offices are open 24 hours seven days per week. If necessary, go to the emergency room. Though you will likely need to schedule a visit to the dentist office as soon as possible, doctors in the emergency room can help you with a temporary solution that increases the odds your tooth will survive and will be able to be replaced.

Are you concerned about dental emergencies or do you have children or loved ones that participate in activities that put you teeth at risk?  You should know how to protect your teeth and the teeth of those around you. If you would like to know more or you are having a tooth emergency, contact us as soon as possible.
