Dental injuries, such as those sustained from road side accidents, sports, direct blow to the face, and trauma from trips and falls, can injure the teeth as well as the soft tissues of the oral cavity. If timely treatment is not sought, the patient can permanently lose the affected tissues and teeth, and would also have to deal with all the related complications of the injury. This is why we at Theresa Frank DDS offer emergency injury treatment to patients at our clinic.
Excessive blood loss, swelling, teeth dislodgement, mobility, fractures, and lacerations are some of the most common dental injuries we see at our clinic. However, there are many different ways to avoid permanent tissue loss and to maintain haemostasis in a medical/dental setting. Following an injury, the very first thing you should do is give us a call so we can guide you through things you can do before you reach the clinic. Once at the clinic, our team will provide you with the best care possible, making sure you’re back to your normal routine as soon as possible. We use dental splints, sutures, and lasers to treat dental injuries, and to stabilize teeth their sockets. Give us a call today to learn more about oral injury management at home!
