A Knocked Out Tooth Is a Dental Emergency

Posted .

Sometimes a hard fall, or a sports injury can impact the mouth with sufficient force to sever the periodontal ligaments that anchor a tooth in its periodontal socket. If this has just happened to you or someone nearby, you need to seek emergency treatment professional dentist like Dr. Robert Jackson.

While you are on your way to Jackson Dental’s clinic, applying a few first-aid measures might help minimize the pain and the chances of saving the traumatized tooth.

Most of the time a knocked out tooth is only viable for implantation back into the socket if it’s treated with the first half hour. You can keep the tooth alive by holding it in your mouth between the cheek and gums, or you might want to try keeping the tooth alive with a tooth-preservation product, that has earned the American Dental Association’s approval

This comes in the form of a small container loaded with a Hanks Balanced Salt Solution of suspended minerals and other specially formulated ingredients. This solution can help keep a tooth alive

Once you arrive at Dr. Robert Jackson’s office, they will assess the severity of the trauma to the tooth and present you with the most effective treatment plan.

If you are in the Carrollton, Texas, area and you have suffered a severe dental trauma, you should call 972-492-1064 to seek emergency dental treatment at Jackson Dental’s dental offices.
