Avulsed Tooth Endondontics Utah

A knocked-out tooth is referred to as an "avulsed" tooth in the dental community. This is one of the most time sensitive dental emergencies if you wish to retain your permanent teeth. If a tooth is completely knocked out of your mouth it is essential to contact an endodontist in Utah immediately. The tooth may be saved if treatment is received quickly and critical steps are followed. Pick up the tooth by the biting surface, do not touch the roots, and gently rinse. If possible, place the tooth back into the socket or in a glass of milk in order to prevent it from drying out.

Can my avulsed tooth be saved?

The odds of saving a tooth in young children are higher than in adults but it is still possible to save an adult tooth as well if the proper procedure is followed. Depending on how long the tooth was out and if it was stored properly, a Utah endodontist may be able to reinsert and stabilize the tooth with a splint. After the splint has been in place for a period of time a root canal is needed.

How long does it take an avulsed tooth to heal?

If the bone around the tooth was not fractured, the tooth will be firmly attached to the bone in around three to four weeks. However, if the damage was more significant, it may take six to eight weeks to healing. After placing the tooth, a dentist should examine the tooth again in three to six months and if there are no signs of infection, the next visit will occur at your yearly check up.

Chipped Tooth

Most chipped teeth can be repaired with a simple filling and cap. However, a fracture often extends to the roots, exposing the pulp of the tooth. A root canal treatment is usually required to save and restore function to the tooth.

Dislodged Tooth

A tooth becomes dislodged as a result of being pushed sideways out of or into its socket. In order to save the tooth, an endodontic treatment is necessary to reposition and stabilize the tooth. If the pulp of the tooth has been damaged a root canal must be started in addition to medication followed by a permanent a root canal filling or crown placed at a later date.

Accident / Trauma

We provide our patients with the finest care and state-of-the-art technology with each and every procedure. From the moment you walk through our door, we take care of everything so you can relax in our friendly and comfortable environment.

Root Fractures

A horizontal root fracture is less common and the healing success largely depends on where the fracture is located. The closer a fracture is to the tip of the root, the greater the chance of success is. Stabilization and medication may be required to begin the healing process followed by the eventual root canal to repair damaged pulp.
