Partially dislodged teeth

Partially dislodged teeth

To Provide Comprehensive Quality Care:

A dislodged, or luxated tooth is one that has been partially pushed into or out of its socket during an injury. Do not touch or remove the tooth from your mouth even if it is partially out of the socket. While you’re waiting for your appointment, you can take over the counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen and use cold compresses to reduce swelling.

Your dentist will anesthetize and clean the affected area. If the tooth is visibly intact he or she will likely reposition and stabilize your tooth, then perform a series of x-rays to see if the root’s nerves or blood vessels have been fractured or damaged. Your dentist may also recommend additional tests at follow-up appointments as x-rays may not be entirely accurate immediately following a tooth’s injury.
