When a tooth has been dislodged or loosened from its socket by trauma or decay, it might be possible to save it. If the tooth remains in the mouth still attached to the blood vessels and nerves, there is a good chance root canal therapy will not be necessary.
Here are some steps that can be taken at home:
- Call our office at 647-957-9369.
- Apply a cold compress.
- Take over-the-counter medications to relive pain.
Your dentist will reposition the tooth and add splints to stabilize it. If the tooth fails to heal, root canal therapy might be required.
