What to Do With a Dislodged Tooth

what to do with a dislodged toothA dislodged tooth is considered a dental emergency. Teeth can be partially pushed into or out of their sockets in accidents. They can also be pushed sideways. This can result in infection, damage to nearby teeth, or the ultimate loss of the tooth without treatment along with pain and cosmetic concerns. Repositioning and stabilizing the tooth quickly is essential to preserving the health and function of the tooth.

If you or someone you love has suffered a dental accident that has dislodged a tooth, contact our Thousand Oaks emergency dentist immediately. An oral splint or wire brackets may be needed to stabilize the tooth and help secure it in the proper position. This allows the bone to heal around the tooth in the most minimally invasive way possible.

If the damage was severe or involved the blood vessels and nerves of the tooth, you may need a root canal treatment. A root canal treatment removes the soft tissues inside the tooth, and this prevents future discoloration, infection, or other potentially serious problems. Some patients may need medication along with the root canal treatment for the best results. Children whose teeth are still developing may not need a root canal treatment after a tooth is dislodged, but they do require close monitoring and proper stabilization to ensure the tooth is healing properly.

Dental emergencies such as dislodged teeth can be frightening, but fast action can save the tooth and protect your smile. Give us a call today to learn more or to schedule your appointment.
