Traumatic Injury Treatment
Traumatic facial injury is another reason you may be in need of endodontic treatment. This can occur due to sports related trauma, car accidents, falls, or any other trauma. The most common results of these types of injuries are teeth that become dislodged, are pushed back into the socket, or that are completely avulsed (knocked out). When this type of injury occurs, we may be able to repair your tooth with endodontic treatments. We’ll start by repositioning and stabilizing the tooth within the socket. Then, we will also likely need to offer root canal therapy as damage following traumatic injury almost always reaches the inside of the tooth. If we’re able to see you quickly enough, we may even be able to replace an avulsed tooth, so don’t hesitate to contact us.
