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.
