Trauma Management

Trauma Management: Endodontic Services After an Accident

When a tooth is injured in an accident or sports collision, it could result in minor or severe trauma to the tooth. For example, a seemingly small crack or chip can result in bigger issues down the road. Or the tooth might be knocked out and require evaluation by our team of specialists nearby. Other injuries like a chipped molar, or a cracked wisdom tooth can also be traumatic injuries and you might need an immediate cracked tooth repair or a chipped front tooth repair.

Regardless of the severity of the trauma or accident, it’s essential to visit with an endodontic specialist to determine the extent of treatment that is needed. A thorough examination is necessary as part of the diagnostic process.
