At Clínica Endo we have extensive experience and training in Dental Traumatology, performing emergency management and surgical and endodontic treatments that each specific case implies.

The use of a high resolution scanner (CBCT) allows us an adequate diagnosis and treatment plan in these types of situations where three-dimensional diagnosis is essential.


What to do when a dental trauma happens?

If a family member suffers dental trauma, or if it is you who presents it, you should contact a specialist in this field as soon as possible.

In certain situations, the minutes after the trauma are very important in the prognosis of the case and you should follow a series of recommendations according to each specific situation.

The most severe cases, in which there is a displacement of the tooth or even its avulsion (the tooth comes out of the mouth), those first minutes and the actions that the patient or parents take before the visit to the specialist, are crucial .

«It is very important to act quickly, the first minutes are crucial»

At Clínica Endo we want, not only to plan the most appropriate treatment, but also to help and educate parents and patients who suffer dental trauma so they can follow the appropriate protocols and thus considerably increase the chances of maintaining the tooth once they come to the clinic.

Below we show an informative video from the Spanish Association of Endodontics (AEDE) on the action protocol when a permanent tooth comes out of the mouth of a patient after trauma (Avulsion).

Steps to follow when suffering a dental avulsion:

If a tooth comes out of the mouth due to trauma, that is, it becomes avulsed, we must make sure that it is a permanent tooth. Once this is confirmed, we must know that A DEFINITIVE OR PERMANENT TOOTH, IF IT COMES OUT OF THE MOUTH DUE TO AN INJURY, IT CAN AND MUST BE REPLANTED. In contrast, temporary (milk) teeth should NOT be replanted.

Keep calm

It is important not to lose your temper to think clearly.

Find the tooth

And collect it touching only the crown (white part). Avoid touching the root.

If the tooth is dirty, wash it quickly

Maximum 10 seconds with saline or milk, or under cold water and then reposition it in its socket (the hole in which it was positioned in the mouth).

Keeping the tooth in place.

Once the tooth is back in place, the child must chew on a tissue or gauze to keep it in position.

If not possible, keep it in a suitable medium

If reimplantation is not possible because the child is very agitated or even unconscious, place the tooth in a suitable medium. If there is access to specific solutions at the accident site to maintain avulsed teeth (such as Hank's balanced solution), these would be the first option. The most affordable option may be to place the tooth in a glass with milk or saline.

Seek dental assistance URGENTLY.

Go with the patient and the tooth to a dental clinic or hospital (in the case of loss of consciousness or in very severe cases).


Good hygiene is decisive in the healing period.

Our goal is to keep those teeth compromised after a trauma by applying the latest protocols and treatments, among them is the Dental Autotransplantation.

Through which, in the event of the loss of a tooth and under certain circumstances, we can transplant another tooth from the patient to the affected area, especially to those areas with great aesthetic compromise. This type of treatment is multidisciplinary and also involves the closure of the donor area with orthodontics.

Do not hesitate to inquire with us about the possibility of undergoing a Dental Autotransplantation.
