Important steps to follow if you have a knocked-out tooth.

When you have a knocked-out tooth or a tooth that is loose from an accident, it is crucial to call your emergency dentist in Lincoln, NE, at Northeast Lincoln Family Dentistry as soon as possible.

When you have avulsed teeth or a tooth that has become loose or knocked out, damage occurs in the mouth. More specifically, damage occurs in the nerves of a tooth and surrounding tissues. Surprisingly, tissues that have damage can support the tooth again if and only if the tooth is put back in its socket quickly.

Frequently Asked Questions about a…

knocked-out tooth

How much does it cost to fix a knocked-out tooth?

The cost of fixing a knocked-out tooth can vary. Why? As with any medical procedure the cost varies per patient and depends upon the complexity of the case. It is also important to note that not every patient will choose the same repair option. Therefore, it is a good idea to see your emergency dentist and have them discuss all of your options along with cost. The team at Northeast Lincoln Family Dentistry can provide you with a cost estimate after seeing our emergency dentist in Lincoln, NE.

What will my dentist do for a knocked-out tooth?

Your emergency dentist near me will try to place the tooth that is out of place back in its socket with hopes of regaining support. If the tooth knocks loose, we may stabilize it to see if the tissues will re-attach to the tooth. However, in some cases, the tooth might be too far gone and require a root canal or replacement.

Again if you have a tooth that has fallen our or is loose because of an accident, carefully store the tooth and seek emergency dental care. Teeth can often be put back into place after being knocked out; however, time is critical. A permanent tooth that has been knocked out has the highest chance of being put back in place it it is within 30 minutes of the incident. If you cannot see an emergency dentist in Lincoln, NE, you should visit the ER.

Can you fix a fallen-out tooth?

Yes. Regardless of whether or not the tooth is salvageable, there is an option for you. If the dentist did save your tooth and it only has only minor flaws, a filling will likely cover the damage. If it is more extensive, perhaps dental bonding is an option. Your emergency dentist near me will be able to help you explore all options for tooth repair or replacement.

What do you do if your permanent tooth falls out?

As an adult, if you lose a permanent tooth and it can’t be put back in the socket, it’s likely you’ll need a dental implant. Dental implants not only preserve bone, but will help restore your smile and keep it as natural as possible.
