Dental Trauma

Dental trauma is a serious injury to the mouth, which includes the teeth, jaw, and surrounding soft tissue. This damage can expose the inner tissue of the tooth to infection, and may require root canal treatment.

If you’re suffering from dental trauma, call Emergency Dentist in London now on 02031376356. We’ll give you the next available emergency appointment to quickly relieve your pain and restore your oral health.

What causes dental trauma?

  • Untreated tooth decay
  • Sports accidents
  • Bad falls
  • Root-canaled teeth that don’t have crowns
  • Temporary fillings left in place for too long
  • Biting down on something too hard
  • Severe bruxism (teeth grinding)

What are the symptoms of dental trauma?

  • Tooth damage - cracked, chipped, fractured, loose, or knocked-out teeth.
  • Pain - your tooth may be continuously sore, hurt when chewing, or be sensitive to temperature extremes.
  • Bleeding or swelling - your lips, gums, and other soft tissues may bleed and swell.
  • Change in bite - your teeth no longer fit together when you bite down.

Can my tooth be saved?

Dentists always aim to save the tooth whenever possible. The treatment and outcome for your damaged tooth depends on a number of factors, namely, the type, location and extent of the problem. Your dentist will carefully examine your tooth and determine the best course of action.

If tooth extraction is necessary, your dentist can provide you with a replacement tooth in the form of a temporary crown. Your permanent crown will be custom-made in a laboratory using impressions of your tooth - a process which usually takes about two weeks. Once your crown is ready, you will return to have it fitted. Your smile will be restored with full form and function.
