See your dentist: See your dentist immediately. Any source of trauma can lead to further dental issues, inclusive of tooth loss. If needed, the dentist may need to splint the area or send you to an orthodontist to have it ligated.

See a dentist ASAP: The chances for the traumatized tooth to be healed and to be saved often depend on whether treatment is done correctly and timely. See a dentist ASAP for evaluation, tests and treatment if needed.
