In the event that a person’s tooth is accidentally knocked out, what options are there and how can we help?
The first thing we would do is evaluate if what is left of the tooth is able to be saved. If it is, we’ll replace the tooth and possibly have to do a root canal on it. If we determine that the tooth needs to be completely removed then we can talk about replacing the tooth with a dental implant. We can talk about if there needs to be any grafting material and we’ll make sure that the patient always goes out of the office smiling with a beautiful tooth – whether it be a permanent one or possibly a temporary to get them through during the healing process.
