Traumatic Dental Injury

Traumatic Dental Injury

Traumatic dental injuries often occur in accidents or sports-related injuries. Chipped teeth account for the majority of all dental injuries. Dislodged or knocked-out teeth are examples of less frequent, but more severe injuries. Treatment depends on the type, location, and severity of each injury. Any dental injury, even if apparently mild, requires examination by one of the dentists at Hanson Dentistry immediately. Sometimes, neighbouring teeth suffer an additional, unnoticed injury that only a thorough dental exam can detect.

Treatment options for dental injuries include

  • Repairing damaged teeth
  • Repairing soft tissue injuries
  • Stabilizing loose teeth
  • Replacing displaced teeth
  • Prescribing medication to manage pain, swelling or infection
  • Providing proper documentation for potential claims
  • In extreme cases, extracting fractured root pieces, removing foreign bodies and adjacent soft tissue or initiation of root canal treatment
