Knocked out Tooth
At Signature Dental, we understand the urgency and importance of treating a knocked-out tooth. A knocked-out tooth can occur due to several reasons, including an accident, injury, or trauma to the mouth. If this happens to you, it is essential to seek immediate dental care to increase the chances of saving the tooth.
Our experienced dentists are trained to handle such emergencies and provide prompt treatment to save the tooth if possible. We will evaluate the condition of the tooth and try to place it back into its socket gently. If the tooth cannot be re-implanted, we will provide other appropriate treatment options, such as a dental implant, bridge, or partial denture, to restore your smile's function and appearance.
It is essential to seek dental care as soon as possible to prevent further damage and increase the chances of saving the tooth. At Signature Dental, we are committed to providing high-quality dental care and helping our patients maintain healthy, beautiful smiles for life.
