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.

Great customer service, great work. I've had one failed root canal redone here (it went great), and another root canal done here. Both were tricky operations but were handled well by the awesome staff here. Grateful to have been cared for by them.

The Best. I've had Dr. Brimley do a couple root canals in the past to perfection. I recently had a little emergency as I was getting ready to leave the country for vacation and got a tooth ache just a few days prior. Greater Endodontics got me an appointment in 1 day. Dr. Casper was fantastic. I woke up the next day th...

Since a March 5th appointment with my dentist, I knew a root canal was necessary. I was referred to Greater Endodontics in Riverton, but didn’t call until April 3rd. Ava found a 1:15 pm on April 5th, later changed to 2:15. Get there at 2:00 and in the chair around 2:30. By 3:15 I’m thinking they forgot about me. Tr...

— Debbie Costello, Posted April 6th 2024 on google
I had a root canal done today with Dr. Brimley. He and Aubrey were absolutely amazing for me because I suffer a lot of dental anxiety and extreme panic attacks. This did not phase them in the slightest despite how many times I apologized. They constantly checked on me throughout the procedure and were very understandin...

I recently had my second root canal with Dr. Brimley. Both experiences went very well. They didn't have to knock me out. The procedure was just over a half an hour. Recovery wasn't that bad. Was pretty much back to normal within a week. Plus they were friendly and I felt they were providing me the best option for my sc...

Appreciated how gentle Dr. Brimley and his assistants were. I usually get a very sore mouth and lips after dental work, but not this time.

I had a consult, then the drilling of crown and cleaning of an underlying infection by Dr. Rhett Caspar. He was everything I had hoped for and heard about him.

One of the best dental experiences I’ve had. All of the staff were kind, patient, and willing to go to extra efforts to make me feel comfortable and less anxious. They were easy to schedule with and I knew my cost upfront prior to the procedure. I would recommend them to anyone for future dental work.
— angela moser, Posted March 19th 2024 on google
I've needed several root canals over the past few years and Dr. Casper has done them all. I keep going back to him because he explains the situation with my tooth, the available options, and the benefits and drawbacks of each. Then he asks me what I'd like to do. I appreciate the empowerment that gives me. The office ...
