Unfortunately, traumatic dental injuries can happen to anyone at any time. From a sports incident to car accidents or a bad fall, if you’ve experienced dental trauma, getting immediate dental attention can make a world of difference when it comes to saving and repairing injured teeth.
I’ve Suffered A Dental Injury – Now What?
A dental injury can occur anywhere on the mouth, including the teeth, jaw, and soft tissues. Most traumatic dental injuries are minor, like a cracked or chipped tooth. But other injuries, like a dislodged or a completely knocked out tooth, are more severe and require urgent medical attention.
Regardless of their nature and severity, it’s important to take any dental injury seriously. Depending on the type and extent of your injury, the surrounding teeth and soft tissue may suffer additional damage and can lead to complications that will require more extensive treatments down the line.
The endodontic specialists at Dr. Patty Miami routinely diagnose and treat traumatic dental injuries. Our state-of-the-art techniques and technologies allow us to save and rehabilitate injured teeth, and we offer an array of [cosmetic alternatives] for restoring the aesthetic appeal of your teeth, if needed.

TYPES OF TRAUMATIC DENTAL INJURY
The type and severity of your injury will determine the kind of treatment that you need. These are the most common traumatic dental injuries.
Dislodged Or Displaced Teeth
A traumatic injury to the mouth can cause the teeth to dislodge or be moved out of their normal positions. This is also called a luxation injury. It’s crucial to see a dental professional immediately following this type of injury. Your endodontist at Dr. Patty Miami may be able to stabilize and reposition your teeth with a splint.
Cracked Or Fractured Teeth
A tooth can become cracked or fractured for many reasons. Click here to learn more about how the endodontic specialists at Dr. Patty Miami can fix cracked teeth.
If a tooth is completely knocked out of your mouth, time is of the essence. If possible, gently rinse the tooth with saline solution and put it back into the socket. Don’t brush it, scrape it, or apply chemicals like soap or alcohol. If you can’t place the tooth back into the socket, put it in salt water or milk and call us immediately for an emergency appointment. The less time the tooth is out of the socket, the better the chances of saving it.
Also called horizontal root fractures, these require stabilization with a splint and cosmetic repairs to replace the tooth’s broken section. A [root canal treatment] may also be necessary.
