Tooth loss is normal in children. But when, as adults, a tooth gets loose or knocked out, it can be concerning. And it definitely constitutes a dental emergency! Luckily, there’s no need to panic. OnCall Dental in Fresno CA can help.
By acting quickly you have a high chance of being able to save the tooth for reinsertion. If you can locate the tooth, immediately place it in a cup of milk to keep it moist. This helps maintain whatever calcium and healthy enamel may have survived in the tooth after the injury.
To manage the pain, use a cold or hot compress on your cheek, but do not place anything near the gum itself. This could cause further problems. Once you arrive, we will assess the damage and the possibility of reinsertion. If it is possible to retain your original tooth, the procedure is fairly straightforward.
But what we can’t save your natural tooth? Dental implants offer state-of-the-art tooth restoration. We are happy to sit with you and recommend restorative dentistry solutions that are so lifelike, nobody will even know you’ve had work done.
Either way, there’s no unsolvable dental dilemma! The first step is to get in your car and hurry on over. OnCall Dental in Fresno CA has the tools and expertise needed to help you deal with your dental trauma, as well as any other emergency that might come your way. Walk-ins are always welcome!
