I just got my adult tooth front knocked loose in a hockey game.

Customer Question

I just got my adult tooth front knocked loose in a hockey game. I believe it's the pointy tooth and the one to right......I pulled both out. Do I need to see a dentist? Is tehre any long term danger of yanking your own tooth out?

Hi,

 

Thanks for using ' Just Answer ' and i would be glad to assist you.

 

In Case of Traumatic Injury, Apart from the Targeted Tooth,the adjacent Teeth might also show Periapical Infection even though the Tooth is not Carious.

 

I would advise you to Seek a Dentist with your IOPAR ( Dental X -Ray ) which shows the area of Radiolucency i.e Dark on the Periapical Area of the Tooth suggestive of Periapical Infection which requires RCT ( Root Canal Therapy ).

 

Any Further Questions, Revert and i would be glad to Answer.

So there's no chance of any permanent damage or danger by having a couple teeth knocked out as long as I get medical attention in next few days correct?
