Dealing with Traumatic Dental Injuries: Importance of Immediate Care

Understanding Traumatic Dental Injuries

Traumatic dental injuries often occur as a result of an accident or sports injury. The majority of these injuries are minor, such as chipped teeth. It’s less common but more severe to dislodge a tooth or have it knocked out completely. Treatment depends on the type, location, and severity of each injury. Regardless of the extent of the injury, your tooth requires immediate examination by a dentist or an endodontist. Sometimes, neighboring teeth suffer an additional, unnoticed injury that can only be detected by a thorough dental exam.

The Role of Endodontists in Treating Dental Traumas

Endodontists are dentists who specialize in treating traumatic dental injuries. With their advanced skills, techniques, and technologies, they often can save injured teeth. If you have a cracked or injured tooth, it is crucial to find an endodontist near you right away. Most endodontists offer tremendous flexibility in accommodating emergency cases, including availability on weekends in some instances. Seeking immediate care not only provides relief from pain but also increases the likelihood of saving your tooth.
