Traumatic Injury

Traumatic injuries should be treated as soon as possible. Despite having your tooth dislodged or completely knocked out, the tooth can often be saved with treatments coordinated between an endodontist and a general dentist.

Knocked-Out (Avulsed) Teeth

Teeth that are knocked out may require root canal treatment following re-implantation.

What to do if your tooth is knocked out:

Dislodged Teeth

An injury can cause the tooth to be pushed partially into or pulled out of the socket. Your endodontist or general dentist can often reposition and stabilize the tooth with a splint. If the tooth remains healthy, then no further treatment is needed. If the tooth’s pulp becomes damaged or infected, then root canal treatment may be required.
