When Is Dental Trauma An Emergency?


Dental trauma can be a serious and painful ordeal. A dental injury may occur from something as simple as getting hit in the face while playing a sport, or taking a fall headfirst. In many cases, treatment requires dental trauma emergency medicine and procedures beyond an average filling or crown. If you’ve never experienced a dental injury, it may be difficult to gauge the severity of the damage.

The professionals at Greater Endodontics can provide the emergency dental trauma services you need — anytime you need. Our 24/7 emergency hotline and use of cutting edge technology makes us one of the leading endodontic experts in the industry.

Here are some types of dental trauma that require an emergency trip to an endodontist.

What Is Dental Trauma?


Dental trauma is classified as a severe injury to the mouth. This can include any damage to your teeth, gums, lips, tongue, and jawbone. While a small cavity may not be labeled as a dental emergency, a broken or avulsed tooth (in which a tooth has been entirely dislodged from its socket) would be considered severe dental trauma and requires immediate dental trauma emergency medicine and treatment. These types of injuries are rarely life-threatening, but they are undoubtedly painful and can cause dental health issues and cosmetic concerns for the patient.

Types Of Dental Trauma

A dental trauma emergency can come in many forms and may result in severe pain and infections if not treated. Some of the most common types of dental trauma can include:

Your head isn’t the only part of your body that can receive a concussion. A tooth concussion is perhaps the mildest injury your mouth can receive, but it is still considered dental trauma if the concussion is severe. Dental concussions occur when a tooth is hit with significant force, but the tooth remains whole and with enough periodontal ligament support to stay inside its socket. A concussed tooth will not normally require emergency treatment, but it can result in temporary or permanent discoloration. If the tooth turns a dark color or black, this may mean that the tooth is dying and requires immediate endodontic care.

Chipped teeth are another less severe dental injury. Many chips can be repaired with a simple filling and cap. However, if a fracture is extreme it may extend to the roots, exposing the pulp of the tooth. A root canal treatment is usually required to save and restore function to the tooth.

With this type of trauma, the tooth is not entirely removed from the socket. Instead, it has been dislodged most likely as a result of being pushed sideways out of or into its socket. In order to save the tooth, 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 root canal filling or crown placed at a later date.

When a tooth is avulsed, it means that it has been knocked entirely out of its socket. Some of the tooth root may remain in the socket if it has been fractured. The tooth may be saved if treatment and dental trauma emergency medicine are received quickly after 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 will be necessary.

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.

Dental Traumas That Require Immediate Attention

Immediate dental trauma emergency medicine in Riverton is required in cases of dental injury where the inner soft tissue, or dental pulp, has been damaged. A thorough dental examination from a Utah endodontics specialist will help to ease pain and ensure the patient’s dental health.

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 ...

Dr. Brimley was excellent. No pain at all. My root canal was easy.

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 ...

I don't think anyone ever looks forward to root canals. But I received my second root canal last year from Dr Casper and it was amazing how much the burdens, pains and annoyances I'd experienced in my first one were reduced. Dr Casper is amazingly good at minimizing pain and discomfort. It was a root canal, but it was ...

Dr Casper was amazing! I had to get a root canal, and I am someone extremely anxious about dental work. The procedure was pain free and Dr Casper was very kind and polite. Even though getting a root canal sucks, Dr Casper made it the best experience it could be.

Dr. Casper was amazing. Extremely kind and concerned, thorough and caring. He found the source of my bottom jaw pain even though the tooth causing trouble was on the top! He personally followed up with me several times after I had a rough time during a root canal. The front desk ladies were perfectly kind and compete...

First time in over 15yrs I havent had to ask for more anesthetic in the middle of the dental procedure. Staff are very friendly and professional, and even though i arrived late they still saw me and completed the appointment same day. I would recommend this copper creek endodontrics to anyone who asks.

— Yumi Pena, Posted November 5th 2019 on google
The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Dr. Rhett Casper explained everything he had to do before he started my root canal and he talked to me about what he was doing as he was doing it. I expected to be sore for a few days, but the very next day I had next to no pain or even discomfort. I think that speaks volumes ...
