Knocked out teeth should be placed back into their sockets as soon as possible, optimum within two hours, as the longer the tooth is out of its socket the less likely it will be to save the tooth. The teeth will have to receive root canal treatment either there and then or at the latest two weeks after the repositioning. Once repositioned, the teeth will be splinted along with other stable teeth for at least 14 days after which the splint will be removed and the patient will undergo regular check-ups to make sure the tooth has successfully reattached.
Chipped teeth without nerve exposure can be restored there and then with very aesthetic composite materials (tooth colour materials). If the nerve was exposed the tooth will have to receive a Root Canal treatment receiving an aesthetic temporary until the final restoration will be made.
Broken teeth deep under the gum line should be extracted unless the patient agrees with either extrusion of the root left with help of braces or a surgical crown lengthening. If there is still enough tooth above the gum (1 to 2 mm ) a postal crown will be used to restore the broken tooth.
