Tooth Injuries Q & A

What are common tooth injuries?

Most patients injure their teeth while playing sports or during another type of accident. Some of the most common tooth injuries include: 

  • Chips
  • Fractures
  • Avulsion (knocked out)

Getting rapid emergency dental treatment can be vital to saving your tooth. Even if your tooth injury is minor, schedule an appointment at 3D MicroEndo so one of the experienced endodontists can assess your injury and recommend treatment. 

3D MicroEndo offers Saturday hours as well as an after-hours telephone number to call in the case of an emergency.

What should I do if I break or knock out a tooth?

If you break a tooth, put the pieces in a clean, dry container. You can rinse your mouth out and then call 3D MicroEndo for an appointment. Make sure to let the team know if you can see any of the tooth’s exposed yellow dentin or red pulp. 

If you knock out a tooth, pick up the tooth by the crown and rinse off any dirt or debris. You need to keep the tooth moist, so if possible, place the tooth back into its socket or tuck it between your cheek and gum. You can store the tooth in a tooth preservation kit or milk — don’t store it in tap water as the chemicals can damage your tooth. 

Call 3D MicroEndo and let them know what happened. The office team schedules you for the next available appointment so your endodontist can replant and restore your tooth. 

Can an endodontist save my tooth?

Yes, if you get rapid treatment, the team at 3D MicroEndo should be able to save your tooth. Depending on your injury, they might be able to bond a broken tooth back together or reimplant a tooth that’s been knocked out. 

They can provide splinting and other treatments to secure your tooth while it heals. In some cases, they might need to perform root canal therapy, or they could recommend that you get a crown to protect your injured tooth. 

If you have a tooth injury, call 3D MicroEndo or schedule a same-day appointment online for rapid, expert treatment to save your tooth.
