A knocked-out tooth, also known as dental avulsion, is a dental emergency that demands immediate attention. It is a relatively common occurrence and can happen to people of all ages due to various reasons like falls, accidents, or facial injuries.
When a tooth gets knocked out, it may come out whole or in fragments. If the tooth remains intact, there is a possibility of saving and reimplanting it.
It is crucial to act swiftly as the tooth is exposed to potential contamination once it's out of the socket. Bleeding from the empty socket and injuries to the surrounding gums may also occur.
