man missing a toothDamaging a permanent tooth is not a laughing matter. Although your teeth are meant to last for a lifetime, 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. Besides decay and infection, you might lose an adult tooth from extraction or injury. If it was lost from a fall or blow to the face, time is of the utmost importance. Contrary to what you may have heard, sometimes a knocked-out tooth can be saved if you act fast. You need to take quick action at home and call your emergency dentist right away.
