Questions & Answers

Traumatic Dental Injuries

Are dental injuries common?

Traumatic dental injuries can happen often in contact sports and activities. It is most common to experience a minor injury, like a chipped tooth, and less common to experience a severe injury, such as having a tooth knocked out. The treatment you receive following this injury will depend on the type, but it is important to seek the help of a dentists immediately after the injury occurs. It is common for there to be unnoticeable issues that could only be detected by a dental exam.

How will my injury be treated?

If you experience a chipped tooth, it is likely that our dentists can repair this with a filling or by reattaching the broken piece of tooth. If most of the tooth has been broken off, it may need to be restored by a dental crown. If you experience a knocked-out or completely dislodged tooth, contact our dentists immediately. There is a chance the tooth could be saved within a certain amount of time. The treatment for this will differ case by case.

What if a child experiences a dental injury?

Since children have primary teeth that will be replaced, the treatment for them does differ from adults. If a child chips their tooth, we will repair it aesthetically by using a filling. The treatment will depend on the injury, but it is comforting to know their baby teeth are not permanent.
