Endodontist, Dr. Andrew Stubbs, can help you evaluate and treat your injured tooth. It is important to see your dentist immediately following an injury so that we can stabilize the tooth and safeguard your health.
Our endodontist will carefully assess the status of your root and pulp. It is his job to rule out any potential threats of tooth loss or internal damage. If he finds that the trauma risks your oral health and comfort, he may recommend endodontic treatment over a simple restoration.
If a larger segment of your tooth breaks, the pulp may be exposed, and will require endodontic treatment. Dr. Stubbs can help treat this injury and provide meaningful and experienced care.
Traumatic dental injuries can cause teeth to shift out of their normal positions. If your tooth appears to be pushed to the side, down into the socket, or partially out of the socket, see your dentist right away. Root canal evaluation is important here to make sure the inside of the tooth was not damaged in the accident.
If a dental emergency completely knocked your tooth out of your mouth, seek dental care right away. Rinse the tooth gently, and store it in the socket, or in a bag of saline or milk. It is optimal to replant the tooth within an hour of losing it.
In a developing tooth, root canals may not be necessary following avulsion, but root canal treatment is key after an avulsion injury to an adult tooth.
When a serious dental injury occurs, we must treat it from the inside out. The inner nerves and soft tissues of each tooth need to remain in a state of total health in order to prevent severe pain and tooth loss. Dr. Stubbs can help you by checking the status of your inner tooth, and treating it if necessary.
