  • I seems that either your whole tooth has come out or the tooth has broken from the root which is called root fracture, only then you can see inside gums. If the whole tooth has come out and if find the tooth and go to dentist immediately, it can be reimplanted and this is called reimplantantion of the tooth. The success rate of reimplanted tooth depends on the time elapsed between the tooth trauma and the treatment. If it is root fracture then your dentist will decide whether the left out root has to be removed or he can put post and core on it and restore the tooth. So schedule a visit to dentist asap.
