Dental Avulsion is a term used to describe a severe dental trauma. It is often related to an accidental blow to the mouth where a tooth is fractured at the gumline or knocked out of its socket in the gums. In a case where the tooth is knocked out whole and kept alive a dentist like Dr. Chad Gubler and Dr. Sean Gubler might be able to install it back into its natural place in the gums.
For this treatment plan to be a viable the tooth must be kept alive as you make your way to Gubler Dental for emergency treatment.
You can keep the tooth alive by holding it in your mouth between your cheek and gums. If this is inconvenient you might want to try using a tooth preservation product that uses a Hanks Balanced Salt Solution. The Save-A-Tooth brand has been approved by the American Dental Association, and can often be found in the oral hygiene aisle of certain stores.
In a case where the tooth has been badly damaged or fractured at the gumline it might not be viable for reimplantation. In a case such as this we might need to extract the remnants of the tooth’s root. After all the soft tissues trauma in the area has healed we can help you understand your dental restoration option.
