Tooth Pain After a Car Accident
Riverton


Car accidents can cause severe trauma to your body. There are many urgent needs to attend to in the immediate aftermath of a car accident, but don’t overlook the importance of dental care after an accident. While some injuries may more obviously require dental attention, not all kinds of dental trauma after an accident are visible.

If you have been in a car accident where airbags deployed, you hit your face against another object (including the steering wheel, dashboard, or the seat in front of you), or you suffered from severe whiplash, you may also have injured your mouth. The sooner you receive treatment, the more likely you will be able to keep all of your teeth and be pain–free. If you’re experiencing tooth pain after a car accident in Riverton–it’s time to meet with one of the dentists of Greater Endodontics.

I saw Dr Casper for a retreat (my 4th root canal, all by different docs). Dr Casper has a nearly pain free numbing technique. Nobody does it quite like him. I felt pressure but no actual pain. If you hate numbing, Dr Casper is your man! Also he told me there was a low-moderate probability of success, but he did so very...

Really amazing people. I was extremely nervous going in but they made me feel much better before the procedure. They were very gentle and patient when answering my quedtions. Doctor Casper is amazing at what he does and I would definitely recommend this office!
— Curtis R, Posted October 3rd 2023 on google
Always great experience. They were very kind gentle and very knowledgeable. I always recommend that you go this route with a root canal first. Two save time and money. Let them do their expertise.

Root canal made easy, thank you.
— James Christensen, Posted September 14th 2023 on google
I’be had quite a bit of dental work over the years because of a trampoline accident I had when I was younger and I have really bad anxiety about going to the dentist because of it. I had to get my root canal retreated and was referred here by my dentist. In all the dental work I have had done, I have never felt more ...

Just had a root canal done here and I really couldn’t be happier with the whole experience. I was in excruciating pain for a couple weeks before I decided I needed to get this fixed. Dr. Casper was gentle and very knowledgeable. He was dialed in during the procedure and I felt very comfortable with him doing his t...

EVERYONE at Greater Endodontics is amazing but Dr. Brimley was the kindest, most compassionate provider I have ever come across. I wish he was my general DDS! Thank you to everyone that took care of me last week!

The Other Side Academy organization is so thankful for you and your team. Our students are smiling big because of your generosity.
— Tori Dixon, Posted June 15th 2023 on google
First root canal in over 20 years and I have high anxiety when I go to the DDS. The staff was very friendly and my bill was over $250 less than originally quoted. Dr Casper & his assistant were amazing! I was highly impressed which when it comes to dental work is saying alot! I will definitely recommend Greater Endodon...

Dr. Casper and his staff were fantastic. They were very patient with me as we worked to find the problem. They then did an sending job fixing it. Thank you
— Justin Woodward, Posted February 14th 2023 on google
Wonderful staff and doctor was very quick, gentle, and thorough!
— Ayn Larson, Posted December 29th 2022 on google
If you need a specialist for root canals, definitely come here. I've unfortunately have had to come here on two different occasions, due to different teeth. I had Dr. Rhett Casper work on one tooth and the second time I've gone, Dr. John Barrett. They both did a wonderful job on the tooth that they worked on. The staff...

They were quick efficient and painless. Highly recommend.
— Daniel Shaw, Posted December 5th 2022 on google
Dr. Casper was a magician! My first root canal at a different dental office was total torture. This one with Dr. Casper was a breeze! I even fell asleep a few times, never thought that would happen. I didn’t feel anything the entire time, not even the initial numbing. Would definitely recommend them to anyone.
— Jocelyn Fiefia, Posted July 13th 2022 on google
Got a root canal with Dr Barret and it went super well. I’ve had a root canal before and the entire process was so long and painful; the numbing stopped working half way through and it was a nightmare. But this place did a great job! Great staff, great work, they worked with me and my anxiety, and overall I now trust...
— Tania Molinar, Posted June 9th 2022 on google
I’m so glad I came here for my root canal. The whole staff was so friendly and welcoming - and worked well with me and my insurance who decided not to cover to root canal. They helped me with a payment plan that was simple and easy. Dr Casper is the most gentle dentist I’ve ever been to. It was my first root canal ...
— Julia Jenson, Posted March 18th 2022 on google
Dr. Brimley was excellent. No pain at all. My root canal was easy.
— Jeremy Huntley, Posted January 28th 2022 on google
My review will be a little different from all the others posted here because I am a retired dentist. I practiced for 43 years in California as a general dentist before retiring to Utah. I have done many root canal treatments and I have seen many patients who have had root canals done elsewhere. I self-referred myself ...

Great service and very attentive. Super happy with the work they did and how helpful and aware they are of their patients.
— Chris Wright, Posted October 7th 2021 on google
I was pretty worried about getting my first root canal but it was a great experience I felt nothing at all. Also the staff is all really nice.

Types of Dental Trauma


In a car crash, it’s possible to injure your teeth and jaw directly or indirectly. A foreign object hitting your mouth or teeth can result in a direct injury. Indirect injuries often occur due to whiplash, which may force your teeth to crush together in an unnatural motion. Direct or indirect, dental trauma is categorized in three ways:

Luxated Tooth

A luxated tooth is still attached to the gum but is loose. A dentist can help you get the tooth back into place and ensure no additional damage has occurred to the tooth or the rest of your mouth.

Avulsed Tooth

An avulsed tooth has become completely dislodged from the gum. (knocked out) If you lose a tooth in an accident, you have a two–hour window to preserve your natural teeth after they are avulsed. Pick up the tooth by the crown (not the root) and immediately put the tooth in a container filled with saliva, saline solution, or whole milk. Get to a dentist as soon as possible to preserve your natural tooth or teeth.

Fractured Tooth

A fractured tooth is when part of the tooth breaks, but the lower part of the tooth is still attached to the gum. Teeth can fracture in several ways. Treatment for a fractured tooth depends on the kind of fracture:

  • Ellis I fracture: This kind of fracture doesn't extend beyond the tooth's enamel. Your teeth may have some rough edges but are likely not tender. Your tooth will not have changed color.
  • Ellis II fracture: This kind of fracture is more painful as it goes past the tooth enamel and into the dentin layer of your tooth. As a result, your tooth is likely sensitive to touch and exposure to air.
  • Ellis III fracture: This is the most extreme type of fracture. In this case, the fracture impacts the enamel, the dentin, and the pulp layer of your tooth. Your tooth will be sensitive to touch and air and will likely require a root canal to repair it fully.

If you experience tooth pain after a car accident, see the dental experts of Greater Endodontics in Riverton as soon as possible. We can give you peace of mind that your teeth and jaw are still healthy.

Tooth and Jaw Pain After a Car Accident
Riverton


You should visit a dentist if you are experiencing tooth or jaw pain, even without any visible teeth injuries. Tooth pain can manifest in several ways. It may be concentrated in a specific tooth or an expanded area in your mouth, or it can extend into your gums or jaw. It may even cause headaches.

Jaw impairment injuries are common after a car crash. If you've experienced a head injury, you're at greater risk for temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMJ. Signs of TMJ include pain in your jaw, difficulty chewing, or a clicking sound in your jaw joint. You may also experience earaches or vertigo. Since the jaw is located so close to the ear, a jaw injury can also affect your ear.

If you are experiencing jaw or tooth pain after a car accident, don't hesitate to contact a dentist specializing in dental trauma like the experts of Greater Endodontics in Riverton.
