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.

Dr. Larsen was about the best Endodontic Dentist I've ever met. Funny, professional, and gave amazing care. The only place I'd recommend my friends go.

I can't say enough good about Dr Curtis Brimley and his assistant. I had a complicated root canal and he was the only one that was able to complete it, He is a master. I would never go to anyone else. I was told I would have to have my tooth extracted and after others had attempted it and failed, they even called me...

So far on day 1 after the gentle wave root canal by Dr. Larsen, I’m doing well. No pain and the whole process took about an hour.
— William Schuetz, Posted June 15th 2024 on google
So impressed and would highly recommend Dr. Brimley and his staff for dental treatments. All very friendly people and a great environment. I really appreciated the explanations for my root canal and the consistent checking of the procedure by Dr. Brimley. Keep up the great care and dental procedures.

I appreciated Dr. Casper's knowledge and explaining to me my options and also offering his advice on how we should approach a problematic tooth due to the error of another. I'm optimistic we made the right decision.

Very friendly and professional.

Dr. Brimley did a fantastic job on my root canal and I had only had to take a few tylenol for pain towards the evening. I felt priviledge to sit in a brand new chair. I was thinking maybe the next chair should have a small massage link to it. I would highly recommend Dr. Brimley plus he knows a little about plumbin...

I was a new patient at Greater Endodontics Riverton. I was so impressed. I needed a root canal. I was very nervous.

Doctor Larsen was excellent. He was extremely patient, answered all my questions, and ensured that I was comfortable throughout the procedure. The staff was very professional and upfront with the cost and billing options. A really good experience for a first timer.

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.
