What do you do if you lose a tooth?
If a tooth is lost or knocked out, remain calm and try to locate the tooth. Only handle the tooth by the crown and try not to disrupt the root structure. If you can find the missing tooth, rinse the tooth gently to remove any debris and then place the tooth in a cup of the patient’s saliva or milk.
Contact our Dunnellon, FL dentist office as soon as you can. Dr. Perkins offers dental implants for the replacement of missing teeth.
I broke my dental crown, can I fix it?
Never attempt to reattach a dental crown or filling by yourself. If you break or lose a dental restoration, contact our Dunnellon, FL dentist office right away. In most cases, a new restoration will have to be fabricated and refit.

What should I do if I chip, crack, or break my tooth?
Sometimes it is hard to determine if a broken tooth is a dental emergency. It is important to realize that you may not be able to assess the damage or the further damage that may occur without immediate treatment. It is best to gather the broken pieces and schedule an emergency dentist appointment. Our expert dentist can assess the tooth to determine if treatment is needed that day. We utilize CEREC technology to restore teeth with veneers or crowns the same day.
