|Our office understands the trauma of losing a tooth. It doesn't matter if it's an accident- or sports-related event.
It can always be a little scary. If you have small children, the odds are, you may encounter situations involving teeth that are knocked loose or out. Knowing when it is an emergency and when to wait for a quick appointment can help quell your anxiety.
The Most Common Oral TraumaWe would like to provide some information on the most common types of unexpected trauma. The first most common is cracked teeth. The National Youth Sports Safety Foundation (NYSSF) estimates that players who don't wear mouthguards are 60 times more likely to crack their teeth while engaged in a sporting event. When a tooth has been cracked, make an appointment with us. The tooth may require a cap or root canal to avoid infection.
When tooth trauma like that happens, it isn't always limited to the crown area of the tooth. It can happen when a blow at the right angle causes a fractured tooth root. Although difficult to see with the naked eye, schedule a dental check-up. We can see if you need root therapy. It can ensure that necrosis doesn't cause tooth loss down the road. The two injuries that require absolute immediate care are tooth extraction and intrusion.
An extracted or lost tooth should be either reinserted while you immediately seek help or keep the tooth in some milk. Intrusion is when the tooth is knocked into the jawline. Without care, it can die and develop an infection. The tooth has the greatest chance of reattaching if emergency care happens within two hours of either trauma.
Emergency CareIt's important you have the emergency contact numbers for our office. You never know when an emergency can strike. Keep in mind, when the tooth is bent, has an intrusion, or it's knocked out; it's of the utmost importance you seek care within two hours. This can give the tooth a chance of avoiding permanent loss.
If you need more information or to get caught up on our emergency dental procedures. Call today, we are here to assist with all your oral care needs.
