Dental Services that Can Address Knocked Out Tooth

Root Canal Therapy

If your tooth was stored correctly and reinserted within thirty minutes to an hour after the injury, root canal therapy may be done to save your tooth.

The dentists at Timberlands Dental Clinic have years of experience in performing this procedure and will work hard to preserve your tooth as much as possible.


If your tooth is beyond saving, a removable appliance known as a denture can be fabricated to replace it and the surrounding tissues. 

At Timberlands Dental Clinic, we can make you a comfortable and well-fitting denture that will give you back your smile.

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge is a non-removable appliance that replaces missing teeth and is held in place by natural teeth on either side of the space. 

Your skilled dentists at Timberlands Dental Clinic can provide you with a high-quality bridge that will restore the function and appearance of your teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are surgically placed titanium posts in your jawbone that provide a foundation for artificial teeth.

If you’re looking for a fixed replacement for knocked-out teeth, we offer dental implants that feel just like your natural ones.

Frequently Asked Questions about
Knocked Out Tooth

If a permanent tooth has been knocked out, you should closely follow these steps:

  1. Find the tooth. Hold the tooth by the crown (the chewing surface) and not by the root.

  2. If the tooth is dirty, rinse it off with water. Do not scrub it or remove any tissue fragments.

  3. Reinsert the tooth carefully into its socket by holding the crown. Gently bite down on the tooth or hold it in position with a clean cloth until you see your dentist.

  4. If that isn’t possible, put the tooth in a container filled with milk. Bring this to your dentist at once.

It is ideal to visit your dentist within 30 minutes to an hour from when your tooth has been knocked out.

The sooner you get to them, the more likely the tooth can be replanted and preserved.

The good news is that if the tooth was knocked out and immediately reinserted or brought to your dentist, there is a good chance of preserving it. However, if this is not possible, then it is likely that you will have a missing tooth. A missing tooth can cause several dental problems if not replaced as soon as possible. Luckily, there are dental procedures aimed at filling in the gap. 

The best way to prevent knocking a tooth out is to avoid injuries or accidents to the mouth. It is recommended to limit eating of hard and sticky foods to prevent damage. If you participate in high-contact sports, consult your dentists for a mouth guard to protect your teeth.
