  • What if I have a chipped or cracked tooth?

    If you have a chipped or cracked tooth, it’s important to seek care from DeFuniak Springs Family Dental as soon as possible. Minor chips might need just a simple polish, while more significant cracks could require more extensive treatment. We will evaluate the damage and recommend the best course of action to restore your tooth and protect it from further harm.

  • What if my tooth gets knocked out?

    For a knocked-out tooth, time is of the essence. Try to handle the tooth gently and keep it moist, ideally in milk or a saline solution. Contact Us immediately—the sooner you can get to us, the better the chance we can reimplant the tooth successfully.

    • Pick Up Safely: Handle the tooth by the crown (the top part), not the root. Avoid touching the root to prevent damage.
    • Rinse With Care: Gently rinse the tooth with water only. Do not use soaps or chemicals, and avoid scrubbing the tooth.
    • Reinsert If Possible: Try to reinsert the tooth into its socket. Use gentle pressure with your fingers and try to keep it in place by biting down softly.
    • Store Correctly: If reinsertion isn’t possible, place the tooth in a small container filled with milk to keep it moist.
    • Seek Dental Care Immediately: Time is crucial. Contact your dentist immediately for the best chance of successful reimplantation.
  • What if my tooth is loose but still attached?

    A loose tooth requires prompt attention. Avoid manipulating the tooth and contact DeFuniak Springs Family Dental right away. You can try to put the tooth back in its original position by very gently positioning the tooth with your fingers—do not force it

    We’ll assess the situation and determine the best way to save the tooth or advise on other treatment options to maintain your oral health.
