There are cases where the tooth may forcefully shift deeper into its position. It will take a huge pressure such as a heavy blow or accident to exert enough force to shift a tooth from its socket. Your dentist or endodontist will usually commence treatment not long after the injury, in order to maximize success rate. The root canal treatment entails realigning and stabilizing the tooth, with the use of calcium hydroxide medication. Much later, the dentist will have to complete the procedure with a permanent filling to the root canal. Endeavor to maintain a regular visit to your dentist within this healing period for proper monitoring and healing.
If it is a situation where the tooth shifts out from its socket, your dentist or endodontist will still apply the same treatment as above.
