Trauma Control

You had a bad day; you sustained trauma to your teeth. What should you do to minimize dental trauma? Time and time again, dentists have seen that the most critical first step to trauma control is an immediate examination. General dentists can treat dental injuries since they are trained in endodontics (treating traumatic dental injuries). However, general dentists often refer patients to a dedicated endodontist, highly skilled experts in treating traumatic injuries. A quick visit to an endodontist soon after an injury dramatically increases the chances of saving the injured tooth.

Depending on the injury's extent, regular checkups to the general dentist and or endodontist can be necessary for up to five years to ensure successful healing and that no root resorption occurs.

How is a tooth injury treated?

Here are four common cases of dental trauma and a summary of how our Thornhill dental team is able to treat them:

  • Fractured or Chipped Teeth

    1. Is a tooth's crown chipped or fractured?
    2. Is a large portion of the crown chipped?
    3. Is tooth pulp damaged or exposed?
    4. Injuries in the back teeth?
      • AYou may need a root canal and a full crown restoration.
  • Dislodged Teeth

    If your tooth is pushed sideways or pushed into/out of the socket, your tooth will be repositioned and stabilized. You may need a root canal or dental crowns.

  • Knocked Out Teeth

    Visit an emergency dentist or endodontist IMMEDIATELY!

    If you visit an emergency dental office within 30 minutes, the dentist may be able to save your tooth.

    • The dentist will apply a stabilizing splint for the following weeks.
    • You may need a root canal 1-2 weeks later.
  • Root Fractures

    Is your tooth horizontally fractured at the root?

    Our skilled Thornhill dentist will check the fracture; the closer to the tooth tip the fracture is, the better. Your tooth may also require stabilization with a splint

Dental Trauma Tips

In the event of a traumatic injury to the teeth, please consider the following questions while on the way to the emergency dental clinic:

  1. Are there any central nervous system symptoms after the injury?
  2. Are there any disturbances when biting?
  3. Is the affected tooth sensitive to heat changes, or sweet and sour?
  4. Is the affected tooth sore while eating or getting touched?
  5. Is there spontaneous pain in the injured tooth?
