Responding To A Painful Tooth Injury

A tooth injury creates shock, discomfort, and alarm – particularly when that injury leaves a tooth harmed, loosened, or knocked out. If you want to minimize the effect this can have on your smile, and your oral health, prompt treatment is important. If it is possible to do so, your dentist will make sure you do not lose your tooth. This may involve endodontic care in the form of a root canal treatment. If there is no possible way for your tooth to be saved, you can have a natural-looking dental prosthetic put in its place.

Endodontic Care For A Cracked, Loosened, Or Knocked Out Tooth

Care for the interior of your tooth can be important after an injury. A cracked tooth can leave your pulp exposed, and agitate the living nerves within. If your tooth is knocked loose, or completely knocked out, your dentist can try to return it to the socket and secure it, if possible. This may also call for a root canal to treat internal issues. If your tooth is past the point of saving, your dentist can instead respond by talking to you about a replacement tooth. With the support of a dental implant, your replacement can be permanent, which will allow your regular dental functions to remain unaffected.

Dealing With The Cosmetic Consequences Of A Tooth Injury

Some injuries can look bad, but they may need less restorative care than you anticipate. However, you can still desire treatment to improve how you look. To do something about your appearance, your dentist can recommend cosmetic dental treatment. It is also possible to have a natural-looking ceramic dental crown fitted on an injured tooth, in order to provide cosmetic and functional advantages.
