Dental Trauma Aftercare

Greater Endodontics is one of the few endodontist offices in Utah that is open 24/7. We understand that emergencies can happen at any moment and fast action is important in cases of dental trauma. Our offices are open after hours to serve patients that have experienced emergency trauma such as avulsed teeth, root fractures, dislodged teeth, and acute infections. While every case is an individual emergency that requires unique care, these are the basic aftercare instructions our endodontics recommend following dental trauma:

Trauma Aftercare Tips

  • Do not aggravate the damaged tooth or area of the mouth. It may be recommended that you do not eat or drink for up to 24 hours following the procedure.

  • To manage pain and soreness, over the counter painkillers may be taken as needed. If necessary, your dentist will provide something stronger.

  • Keep the mouth as clean as possible. If specific care instructions are needed, your dentist will let you know and provide the necessary supplies.

  • While your injury heals, a specific diet may be recommended. Soft foods like yogurt, soups, and smoothies are easy on a sore mouth.

  • Contact your Utah endodontist at any sign of infection, increased bleeding, or worsened symptoms.

Chipped Tooth

Most chipped teeth can be repaired with a simple filling and cap. However, a fracture often extends to the roots, exposing the pulp of the tooth. A root canal treatment is usually required to save and restore function to the tooth.

Dislodged Tooth

A tooth becomes dislodged as a result of being pushed sideways out of or into its socket. In order to save the tooth, an endodontic treatment is necessary to reposition and stabilize the tooth. If the pulp of the tooth has been damaged a root canal must be started in addition to medication followed by a permanent a root canal filling or crown placed at a later date.

Avulsed (knocked out) Tooth

If a tooth is completely knocked out of your mouth it is essential to contact an endodontist immediately. The tooth may be saved if treatment is received quickly and critical steps are followed. Pick up the tooth by the biting surface, do not touch the roots, and gently rinse. If possible, place the tooth back into the socket or in a glass of milk in order to prevent it from drying out. Depending on the length of time the tooth was out and how it was stored, an endodontist may be able to replace the tooth and stabilize it with a splint. After the splint has been in place for a period of time a root canal is needed.

Root Fractures

A horizontal root fracture is less common and the healing success largely depends on where the fracture is located. The closer a fracture is to the tip of the root, the greater the chance of success is. Stabilization and medication may be required to begin the healing process followed by the eventual root canal to repair damaged pulp.
