Injuries and Trauma

Traumatic dental injuries occur as a result of an accident or sports injury. Treatment depends on the type, location, and severity of each injury. Sometimes, your neighboring teeth suffer an additional, unnoticed injury that can only be detected by a thorough dental exam. Our Endodontists specialize in treating traumatic dental injuries. With their advanced skills, techniques, and technologies they often can save injured teeth. We offer tremendous flexibility in accommodating emergency cases. There are many factors that affect the long-term health of your tooth after an injury, the nature of the injury, the length of time from injury to treatment, and your body’s response. Getting treatment as soon as possible is very important in order to prevent root resorption. Resorption occurs when your body, through its own defense mechanisms, begins to reject your own tooth in response to the traumatic injury.
