Bleeding in the mouth is never typical. Bleeding around a solitary tooth may be an indication of dental injury. A hit to the mouth, impact from falling, or other mishap can result in a tooth being knocked out of place, or even out of its socket. In some cases, the tooth may be pushed further up into the gums. Any of these wounds may cause a tooth to bleed. If you are saying “My tooth keeps bleeding”, call our office now for an evaluation.

How long will treatment for a tooth injury take?
Treating an injured tooth will depend on the sort and seriousness of the injury, and also how well your tooth was cared for immediately after the accident that caused it. This is the reason it is so vital to seek treatment for a tooth injury as quickly as possible after it happens. If a knocked out tooth is not treated quickly, the body may start to reject to tooth. This is known as root resorption. On the off chance that this happens, your tooth may need to be removed and replaced with a dental implant rather than being treated and left in place. Once your tooth treated, you will need to have several subsequent visits with your dentist to guarantee that root resorption is not happening, and to guarantee that the harmed tooth is healing properly.
It can be tempting to overlook a tooth that bleeds for only a brief time after a tooth injury, but it is important that you don’t do so. Damaged teeth can result in other dental issues, and if left untreated may become infected or even fall out.
