Tooth Replacement

Tooth Replacement

When you have a tooth knocked out in an accident, there are steps you can take to make tooth reimplanting by the dentist easier and more successful. If a tooth is knocked out, rinse it off with cool water only using no soaps or disinfectants and place it back in the socket and immediately call and come see one of our Mesa, Arizona dentists – as soon as possible.

If you are unable to get the tooth back in the socket where it came out of then you must get to the dentist within two hours or reimplanting the tooth does not work. Keep the tooth moist in cool water or milk until you are able to come to our office. This will help preserve the tooth and may allow one of our Mesa dentists to affix or splint your natural tooth to adjacent teeth.

When Tooth Preservation is not Possible

Whether your tooth has been knocked out or gone missing for another reason and cannot be reimplanted, one of our Mesa dentists will be able to help you plan a replacement for your tooth with many convenient options.

Options offered by our dentists include:

  • Removable appliances called partial dentures
  • Dental bridges
  • Dental implants

Both dental bridges and dental implants can now be made using a porcelain crown, a gold crown, or zirconia crown these are all known as dental crowns, to replace your missing tooth.

The new BruxZir crowns and bridges made from zirconia are available to replace gold for heavy bites and patients that grind their teeth. They do not chip as the porcelain can. And they look and function great.
