What if I break my tooth?
If you break a tooth, call our Irvine dental practice immediately. We can almost always get you in for a same-day appointment.
Dr. Choi will check your broken tooth for any damage to the root, surrounding teeth, and tissues. If your tooth is still in good condition, Dr. Choi can often repair small breaks with dental bonding on the same visit. A larger repair can be made with a variety of options, such as porcelain veneers, dental implants or dental crowns.
What if I knock my tooth loose?
If your tooth is loose, but is still attached in any way, leave it in place. Do not remove it.
If your tooth is free of its socket completely and unattached, but still in your mouth, hold it in the socket. This will give Dr. Choi the best opportunity possible to re-implant your tooth.
If your tooth cannot be placed in its socket, do not attempt to disinfect it, scrub it, or remove any tissue attached to it. If the tooth is dirty, gently rinse it in lukewarm water and then put it in a glass of milk. Take it with you to Smile by Design. Dr. Choi will do everything possible to save your original tooth and re-implant it.
