Trauma Control & Treatment

You had a bad day; you sustained trauma to your teeth. What should you do to minimize the damage? Time and time again, dentists have seen that the most critical first step to trauma control is an immediate examination. General dentists can treat dental injuries since they are trained in endodontics (treating traumatic dental injuries). However, general dentists often refer patients to a dedicated endodontist, highly skilled experts in treating traumatic injuries. A quick visit to an endodontist soon after an injury dramatically increases the chances of saving the injured tooth.

Depending on the injury’s extent, regular checkups to the general dentist and or endodontist can be necessary for up to five years to ensure successful healing and that no root resorption occurs.

How is a tooth injury treated?

Here are four common cases of traumatic injury and a summary of how they are treated:

Emergency tips?

In the event of a traumatic injury to the teeth, please consider the following questions while on the way to the emergency dental clinic:

  1. Are there any central nervous system symptoms after the injury?
  2. Are there any disturbances when biting?
  3. Is the affected tooth sensitive to heat changes, or sweet and sour?
  4. Is the affected tooth sore while eating or getting touched?
  5. Is there spontaneous pain in the injured tooth?
