Tooth luxation is a condition in which a tooth is displaced from its normal position. The pet should be treated for pain and referred for therapy. If the tooth is fully displaced from the pet, it should be placed in milk until treatment options are discussed.
These pets need the tooth to be realigned and stabilized as soon as possible. Once stabilized (wire or composite splint) the tooth will receive root canal therapy to save the tooth.
