Avulsed Tooth


Teeth aren’t meant to be knocked out easily. In fact, the roots of the teeth are connected to your bone structure, meaning they are meant to be a permanent part of your body. So when a tooth is knocked out or dislodged, it’s typically the result of extreme force to the tooth.

In the event of a tooth avulsion, an emergency dental situation can arise. Teeth are often knocked out as a result of car accidents, sports injuries or other trauma-based injuries.

If you have an avulsed tooth, don’t wait to contact an emergency endodontist. The specialists at Greater Endodontics are here to save your teeth, and the sooner we can help, the better.

What is Tooth Avulsion?


An avulsed tooth is when a tooth is completely knocked out of the mouth. This dental emergency should be treated quickly to save the tooth and prevent further damage to the bone and surrounding teeth.

If you experience a tooth avulsion, follow these steps as quickly as possible:

  • If there is bleeding, apply firm pressure for 5 minutes with gauze or a paper towel.
  • Find the knocked-out tooth and pick it up by the crown (the white part visible in your mouth), not by the root. Do not touch the root.
  • If the avulsed tooth is dirty, gently rinse it off with water or milk. Do not scrub it or use soap on it.
  • If there is any tissue attached to the tooth, rinse it with saliva or milk. If tissue fragments are attached to the tooth, do not remove them.
  • If possible, try to put the tooth back in its socket and hold it in place with gauze or a paper towel. If you cannot put the tooth back into its socket, place it between your cheek and gums or in milk to preserve the tooth as long as possible.

It is critical to go directly to an emergency endodontist within 30 minutes of experiencing dental trauma so they can reimplant the tooth if possible.

What Causes Tooth Avulsion?

The most common cause for an avulsed tooth is impact on the face. This can occur with, but is not limited to, any of the following incidents:

  • A finger or hard object pressed against the mouth area when an accident occurred (e.g., closed-mouth trauma)
  • Getting struck in the mouth by a ball, stick, elbow, fist, knee, etc.
  • Getting hit in the mouth by a moving object such as a door
  • Falling on one's face (e.g., playground injuries)
  • Motor vehicle accidents (e.g., car crashes)

Dr. Larsen was about the best Endodontic Dentist I've ever met. Funny, professional, and gave amazing care. The only place I'd recommend my friends go.

I can't say enough good about Dr Curtis Brimley and his assistant. I had a complicated root canal and he was the only one that was able to complete it, He is a master. I would never go to anyone else. I was told I would have to have my tooth extracted and after others had attempted it and failed, they even called me...

really excellent care
— Reyna Reyes, Posted June 19th 2024 on google
Dr Brimley and staff are very efficient, professional and supportive.

So far on day 1 after the gentle wave root canal by Dr. Larsen, I’m doing well. No pain and the whole process took about an hour.
— William Schuetz, Posted June 15th 2024 on google
So impressed and would highly recommend Dr. Brimley and his staff for dental treatments. All very friendly people and a great environment. I really appreciated the explanations for my root canal and the consistent checking of the procedure by Dr. Brimley. Keep up the great care and dental procedures.

I appreciated Dr. Casper's knowledge and explaining to me my options and also offering his advice on how we should approach a problematic tooth due to the error of another. I'm optimistic we made the right decision.
— Curtis Clayton, Posted June 12th 2024 on google
Very friendly and professional.
— jim bowers, Posted June 7th 2024 on google
Dr. Brimley did a fantastic job on my root canal and I had only had to take a few tylenol for pain towards the evening. I felt priviledge to sit in a brand new chair. I was thinking maybe the next chair should have a small massage link to it. I would highly recommend Dr. Brimley plus he knows a little about plumbin...
— Dave Peck, Posted June 4th 2024 on google
Best of both worlds! It's hard to find good doctors and good office staff, but this is it! Dr. Brimley is amazing and his office staff is so nice. I highly recommend.

I was a new patient at Greater Endodontics Riverton. I was so impressed. I needed a root canal. I was very nervous.

Doctor Larsen was excellent. He was extremely patient, answered all my questions, and ensured that I was comfortable throughout the procedure. The staff was very professional and upfront with the cost and billing options. A really good experience for a first timer.

How do You Treat an Avulsed Tooth?


Treatment for a tooth avulsion depends on the age of the patient and severity of the accident.

Typical treatment for an avulsed tooth involves implanting the tooth back into its socket and then splinting it in place for an adult. This is most successful when the treatment begins within 10 minutes of the avulsion.

For a child or young adult, treatment involves placing the tooth in milk and bringing it to the dentist as soon as possible. It may be reimplanted if it is still viable. Sometimes, however, a root canal is necessary.

Reimplantation is not an option in some cases, particularly if the tooth is too damaged to be restored. In this case, dental implants can replace the missing tooth or teeth.

Greater Endodontics: The Endodontist for Your Emergency Needs

Tooth avulsion is not uncommon, but it is a major incident that should not be taken lightly. It is also best treated by experts, not your average dentist. The endodontists at Greater Endodontics are specially trained to be experts in saving teeth, and we offer 24/7 Emergency On-Call so we can respond to a dental emergency when they happen, not days later.

An avulsed tooth can be frightening and a painful experience. Even though an avulsion can be traumatic, acting quickly is the best way to ensure you'll have a better chance at getting your tooth back.

Luckily, Greater Endodontics is here to help. Contact us for your avulsed tooth in Riverton today.
