If you sustain an injury to the mouth that affects your teeth, you are not automatically subjected to tooth loss if you handle the situation appropriately. No matter what type of injury it is or how severe, you should seek emergency treatment at a dental office or emergency room where you will be advised on the best course of action. In the event of a knocked out tooth, time is of the essence, so the sooner you receive treatment the more likely it is that your tooth can be saved. If your injury does result in tooth loss, there are treatments available—such as dental implants—that can help replace your missing teeth, but it is always best to preserve your natural teeth if possible.
If you suffer a tooth injury, do not delay! Seek emergency treatment right away.
