|Traumatic dental injuries are more common than you think. When something happens to the teeth in your mouth, having the best treatment is necessary.
In order to keep the smile intact, our dental professionals will assess the situation and then choose the best course of action. Knowing what to expect with the process is important so that you can feel comfortable with every step taken.
Whether minor or major, it is important that the right steps are taken to restore the tooth that was affected.
What to Expect
If the tooth has been knocked out, broken or chipped in any way, bring the tooth with you if you can. This can be bonded back to the tooth if it is in good condition and if not much time has passed since the trauma and the treatment. The blood vessels and nerves might have been damaged, but the bone and tooth can still fuse together, essentially saving the tooth.
During this time, our dentists will assess the situation so that you don't have to worry about much of anything. You're in good hands. They will clean out the area, provide a local anesthetic so that you do not feel pain and they will shape, repair, remove, fill and do anything else that may be needed to repair the area and get your smile back.
It is important to note that this is not a scary time. Our dentists make this as comfortable as possible for those that come to see them after a dental trauma.
