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)

Fifteen months ago I had a root canal at a different endodontist in Salt Lake. Ever since that time, my teeth had been in pain. For the past twelve months I have visited with the team at Greater Endodontics four seperate times, specifically with Dr. Matt LeCheminant. Even though the problem was not readily apparent and...

This place was awesome. Very helpful and comfortable. Best part about was the doc is a 49ers fan. Watched Netflix the entire time. The only thing that was missing is a shot and a Beer.

I had a very easy going time during my procedure. I really enjoyed the TV mounted to ceiling! It made the visit go much faster and I wasn’t concerned with what they were doing. Great place!
— Chase Cheney, Posted January 3rd 2022 on google
I was referred to Dr. Facer after sustaining a fractured tooth in a biking accident. The staff was friendly, supportive, and great at communicating everything that was going on. Dr. Facer completed a phenomenal root canal on my tooth, all while dealing with the complicated factor of me having a broken jaw/limited openi...

Dr. Brockbank and his assistant could not have been more caring during my emergency root canal, making certain that I felt no pain during the procedure. I was highly impressed with Dr. Brockbank’s professionalism and skills as a dental surgeon. I very much appreciate their office working with my dentist to find an ap...

I'm so glad I went here. I can't say I enjoyed it or that it was comfortable but I had a tooth with really deep roots and I kept burning through the anesthesia. I think I counted 8 shots before I was done. However, I believe anyone else would have made this uncomfortable experience incredibly painful. Fortunately, ...

I got in on short notice for a root canal. So grateful that they worked through lunch to help me out! Very friendly staff!

This was my first time having a root canal and I was dozing off during my appointment because I was so comfortable. I will recommend this office to everyone I know!

I've had a lot of root canals and dental work - like a LOT. My regular dentist was in the middle of crowning a tooth when it was determined that I needed an urgent root canal. Greater Endodontics had me in and the root canal completed less than 24 hours later and were SO gentle and SO clean. The office is very comforta...

The office staff was friendly and helpful upon my first call through my appointment and checkout. Dr Facer was very experienced, kind, compassionate and honest about a treatment plan and gave me multiple options. I highly recommend Greater Endodontics.
— Jennie Johnson, Posted July 2nd 2021 on google
I had an intensive root canal re-treatment today... something that was possibly going to require a more extensive surgical procedure. Dr. LeCheminant was excellent!! He listened to my concerns and anxieties, answered questions, made adjustments and accommodations to keep me calm and did excellent work! This probably s...

Needed an emergency root canal and they were able to accommodate me. Excellent, friendly staff and the Dr. Brockbank made sure I had absolutely no pain while he performed a very deep root canal. Thank you so much!!!

A great experience in every way. I particularly appreciated the way that the procedures were explained to me in advance as well as during treatment.

Only pain was the numbing shots. Procedure was done quickly and efficiently. Recovery has caused no pain. 10/10
— Hannah Elder, Posted May 25th 2021 on google
Honestly, the worst part was the mental anxiety I put on myself before I went in. I feel like an idiot after going through the process and finding out how easy, fast and painless it was. I highly recommend.
— Aaron Wernli, Posted May 20th 2021 on google
I had an issue with an unfinished root canal and ended up being referred to Greater Endo. I was very nervous, but Dr LeCheminant was so kind and helpful. I was very impressed with their state of the art technology, the friendliness of the employees, and how quick and easy the whole process was. I couldn’t be happier ...

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 Utah today.
