If you are experiencing these dental symptoms or suspect a cracked tooth, see an endodontist, who specializes in saving cracked teeth.
- A dislodged, or luxated, tooth is one that has been partially pushed into or out of its socket, or sideways, during an injury. If this has happened to you, see your dentist or endodontist as soon as possible to stabilize the tooth.
