We’re here to help
All tooth trauma is scary, and we are there to assist you. It’s important that you see a dentist immediately, even if the tooth is slightly broken. And if you’ve knocked out a tooth or many teeth, the earlier you consult a dentist, the greater the opportunity that the teeth can be re-implanted, depending on the severity of your injury.
Remember to keep the knocked-out tooth safe! Keep it clean and avoid touching the roots. There are chances you might be able to put the tooth back into the socket by biting down on a clean towel for approximately 15-20 minutes.
In the case of chipped teeth, we might smoothen the uneven edge and replace the missing part with a composite bond. For molar teeth broken, we might replace them with a crown.
If you need emergency dental treatment, you should consult a dentist as soon as possible. At Dr. Renu Dental Clinic, we provide service for all dental emergencies, from tooth pain to lost or broken crowns, broken teeth, fallen out fillings, dental abscesses, trauma, avulsed teeth, and a swollen face.

The window of opportunity for successful reimplantation of a knocked-out tooth is relatively short. Ideally, you should seek dental care within 30 minutes to an hour after the tooth is knocked out for the best chance of saving it.
Here are some steps you can take immediately after knocking out a tooth.
Remember, time is critical when dealing with a knocked-out tooth. The longer you wait to seek dental care, the lower your chances of successful reimplantation.
Even if the tooth cannot be saved, it's still essential to see a dentist promptly. They can evaluate the situation, provide necessary treatment for any other injuries or damage, and discuss replacement options for the missing tooth, such as dental implants, bridges, or dentures.
