If My Front Tooth can be Salvaged.

Hi,I reinjured one of my front teeth that was previously injured after a fall and was pushed back in my mouth 1 yr ago. I had it positioned back into place, got a root canal done and had splinter over it. But 2 weeks ago I reinjured the tooth and it got pushed back in my mouth again. It got positioned back in place but this time it hung lower than other teeth and is loose. Dentist said I have root reabsorption and should get it pulled. Is my roots broken? Can my tooth be tightened back up again and pushed upwards into gums? Or must I get it extracted? Will my tooth eventually fall out anyways if I decide to keep it? I really want it saved.

Answer: During the treatment process

By Dr. Monica Smith

At the point when you experience unbearable torment and distress on your teeth, you may think about whether you need root channel treatment. This method is normally known as endodontic treatment. The treatment is suggested when the nerve is contaminated and excited. That is ordinarily brought about by tooth rot, or if the tooth is split, broken or harmed. During treatment, the dental master will look for a method for evacuating the tainted mash. In this way, the dental specialist will penetrate a gap in the tooth. The opening will empower the dental specialist to evacuate the mash and clean the trench zone. Subsequent to expelling the mash and cleaning, the gap will be fixed with concrete. Fixing the gap forestalls further harm. A visit to an endodontist or dentist in dracut is essential in deciding if you need the system. Patients are informed to follow the exhortation with respect to the dental specialists. That is on the grounds that they know whether the technique can totally fix your concern.
