As we all know, toothaches and any type of oral injury can be extremely painful and should be seen by a dentist immediately.  Dental emergencies should be seen immediately by a professional. These emergencies include broken teeth, teeth that have been knocked out, or teeth that have been forced out of the socket.  With some emergencies, you may experience pain in the cheeks, lips, or gums and may have cuts or abrasions on them from where the teeth come out of the socket.

If you’ve had a tooth recently knocked out, you should see your dental professional. If you know where your tooth went, gently scrub it to get rid of any dirt or debris and bring it to your dentist. Whatever you do, you should never try to put your tooth back in the socket, as it may cause more damage. If you suffer from this, seek dental attention, as quickly as possible.
