Dental trauma is relatively common and can occur because of sports injuries, car crashes, fights or even a fall. Dental trauma covers a range of injuries such as a chipped or broken tooth, damage to soft tissue including lips, gums or the tongue and any injuries to the bone connected to your teeth.
These injuries can impair the function of your teeth and change the look and feel of your face, mouth, and teeth. If you have experienced dental trauma, it is important to act quickly to save as much original tissue as possible and minimise the amount of work required.
Treating dental trauma may involve a variety of procedures to restore normal bite function, protect exposed nerves or gums and bring back a natural, healthy looking smile. Treatment may vary depending on the age of the patient.
It is always important to seek emergency dental treatment as soon as possible after experiencing dental trauma.
Our practice provides an emergency dental service to help offer the best chance of recovery from dental trauma. Your dentist will explain the different options available to restore damage and replace missing teeth as well as other treatment as appropriate.
