Dental Avulsion is a technical term used to describe a severely traumatized tooth that has shattered, broken off at the gumline or was completely knocked out of the socket. When this happens you will likely experience significant discomfort, bleeding, and other complications.

In a situation like this, you should not delay in calling 813-251-5740 to seek emergency dental care from Dr. David Goldschein and the specialists at his dental office in Tampa, Florida.

The easiest way to assess the severity of the injury is to gently rinse your mouth with some lukewarm salt water. This will help soothe injured gums and clear away any blood from your mouth.

There is a small chance that Dr. David Goldschein can implant the tooth back into the socket. For this to be possible it must be whole and kept alive while you seek care.

You can temporarily preserve the knocked out tooth by holding it between your cheek and gums, or you can use a tooth-preservation product. This is a canister filled with a specially formulated nourishing gel. You simply place the traumatized tooth in the jar and seal it. The nourishing gel will keep it alive long enough for our dentists to assess the situation and come up with a treatment plan.

Dr. David Goldschein might be able to treat the dental avulsion and restore the tooth by performing a root canal. In a case where the damage is severe, he might have to extract any remnants of the tooth from the socket. After your gums have healed, Dr. David Goldschein can help you decide if you want to have a dental bridge or a dental implant installed to replace the missing tooth.

If you are in the Tampa, Florida, area and you have suffered a knocked out tooth, you should not delay in calling 813-251-5740 to schedule treatment at Generations Cosmetic and Family Dentistry.
