Knocked-Out Tooth Cabramatta

Nobody wants to be without a tooth. A lost tooth is the worst nightmare for a beautiful smile. Whether we like it or not, we occasionally experience dental crises that endanger our beautiful smiles.

On the other hand, a knocked-out or avulsed tooth represents much more than just a fault in your smile. If the gap created by the knocked-out tooth is not filled, it might lead to further dental problems.

Cabramatta Dental Care provides instant treatment and action for a knocked-out tooth.

We provide same-day emergency appointments to address your dental issue as quickly as possible.

What to Do If a Tooth is Knocked Out?

what to do if a tooth is knocked out cabramatta

A knocked-out tooth is one of the most frequent emergencies that your Cabramatta dentist addresses.

A knocked-out tooth is more severe than other dental problems since treating it requires more time.

Get to a water source as soon as you locate the tooth, then rinse the crown.

For Baby Teeth

At around age 6 or 7, these teeth begin to fall out spontaneously. If a tooth is accidentally knocked out earlier, don’t replace it. Never try to replace it because doing so could harm the adult tooth that is developing underneath.

Eventually, the adult tooth will erupt. If the injured gum hurts, provide some paracetamol combination or ibuprofen.

A dentist may be necessary to treat a chipped or broken tooth. Cuts inside the mouth could result from any fractured or chipped teeth.

For Permanent Teeth

Older children and adults seem to lose them the most frequently.

The following must be done if one of these teeth is knocked out:

  • It must be quickly inserted back into its socket; and
  • To secure the tooth, you should next visit a dentist right away. As soon as possible after the injury, do this.

A grownup might be able to replace the tooth in its socket:

  • Take action immediately. Make sure to visit the dentist.
  • Do it immediately if the tooth is clean, and then get dental assistance.
  • Handle the tooth by the crown, the bright-white portion often visible in the mouth. Try not to touch the root since it contains delicate cells to which the tooth needs to connect.
  • Make sure the tooth is inserted correctly.
  • Get the wounded person to bite gently on a clean towel after being replanted until a dentist visit.

Zygomatic Implants

This implant is surgically implanted into the patient’s cheekbone. It is the least common type of dental implant among the others, and it is the most complicated procedure that should only be performed if you do not have enough jawbone for endosteal dental implants.

Knocked-Out Tooth Prevention

  • When playing contact sports, wear a custom-fitted mouthguard.
  • Avoid doing things that could hurt your face.
  • Do not bite your nails or avoid biting items like popcorn kernels.
  • When driving, seatbelts must always be worn.

How soon should I see a dentist after I lose a tooth?

The accident occurs right away. Getting to your dentist in Cabramatta on time can mean the difference between keeping and losing a tooth.

Why do I need to soak the tooth in milk?

Since the cells from the root surface don’t expand and burst like when submerged in water, milk best keeps knocked-out teeth.
