Our Endodontic Services:
Knocked-out or Avulsed Teeth

Even if a tooth is completely removed from its socket, it can be successfully replaced.

If you find that you or someone you know has just had a tooth knocked out, here are the steps that you should take.

  • Act quickly
  • Handle the tooth by the crown, never by the root.
  • If possible, reposition the tooth into the socket immediately.
  • If not possible, then keep the tooth moist (use milk or keep it inside your cheek) until you can see your dentist.
  • Go to your dentist as soon as possible. The best chance to save your tooth is if you can see your dentist with in the first half hour of your tooth being knocked out.

Once you are at your dentist, they will probably replant and stabilize the tooth. A root canal will be performed later.

Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment.
