Tooth Pain After a Car Accident


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 –it’s time to meet with one of the dentists of Greater Endodontics.

Had to go in for unbearable toothache and get a root canal. The team was so nice and so professional! They got me in same day and explained every part of the process, making sure I was comfortable. I recommend them 1,000%!

I would recommend Dr.Madsen & his staff all day. Nobody likes having to have a root canal but they make it easy.

I went to a new dentist for a regular cleaning and was told I needed a root canal and had 8 cavities - quoted $4900. Outside of having one cavity my entire life, I have NEVER had any issues with my teeth. So, I was shocked. I ended up getting a second opinion who referred me to greater Endo. Their 3D CT scans can see m...

i had a botched root canal and doctor Brockbank tried to fix it. it was good for a year but problems a sore again from it. i just got out of my appointment and he unfortunately couldn't fix it. i was charged nothing. i had a terrible experience when i was a kid so it stuck with me from then on out. he was a great docto...

Amazing office! Thank you Dr. Brockbank & Haley for the easiest, most comfortable root canal experience ever!
— Sadie Henderson, Posted October 7th 2022 on google
Nobody likes having a root canal, but if you need one - this is the place to go. I’ve unfortunately needed several procedures over the years and I’ve always gone to Dr. Facer. He and the staff are fantastic! Today, due to a small emergency they got me right in and I saw Dr Brockbank - and to no surprise he was als...

Honestly, just for fun I would go and get a root canal from Dr. Matt LeCheminant. I was very nervous going into this procedure, and left with a huge half smile on my face (you know, because the other half was real numb). I was able to watch a a movie on the ceiling, and I truly remember more about the film than I do ab...

The staff today made my visit so much easier than it would have been. Thank you for your kind heart.
— Jess Schenk, Posted August 22nd 2022 on google
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Facer’s for years. Recently, I had a trouble tooth come up, and I had the pleasure of seeing Dr. LeCheminant. They got me in promptly, and took care of all of my needs. World class service and great cost!
— Chase Curtis, Posted July 25th 2022 on google
I have to say, I thought root canals were supposed to be painful. Mine was not at all, it was as delicate as a routine cleaning and just as quick - I timed it. Dr Brockbank started to numb me (painless) and had me out of the office within the hour (and it was my back molar, too). He was attentive, professional an...

Great customer service! Cleared all my confusions I had!
— Robert Olsen, Posted July 5th 2022 on google
This was a very nice dentist office. My experience was quick and as painless as possible! Highly recommend!
— Bekah Brewer, Posted April 19th 2022 on google
Fifteen months ago I had a root canal at a different endodontist in Salt Lake. Ever since that time, my teeth had been in pain. For the past twelve months I have visited with the team at Greater Endodontics four seperate times, specifically with Dr. Matt LeCheminant. Even though the problem was not readily apparent and...
— Amy Curtis, Posted March 12th 2022 on google
This place was awesome. Very helpful and comfortable. Best part about was the doc is a 49ers fan. Watched Netflix the entire time. The only thing that was missing is a shot and a Beer.
— Brandy Bone, Posted January 28th 2022 on google
I had a very easy going time during my procedure. I really enjoyed the TV mounted to ceiling! It made the visit go much faster and I wasn’t concerned with what they were doing. Great place!
— Chase Cheney, Posted January 3rd 2022 on google
I was referred to Dr. Facer after sustaining a fractured tooth in a biking accident. The staff was friendly, supportive, and great at communicating everything that was going on. Dr. Facer completed a phenomenal root canal on my tooth, all while dealing with the complicated factor of me having a broken jaw/limited openi...
— McKenzie Roers, Posted December 13th 2021 on google
Dr. Brockbank and his assistant could not have been more caring during my emergency root canal, making certain that I felt no pain during the procedure. I was highly impressed with Dr. Brockbank’s professionalism and skills as a dental surgeon. I very much appreciate their office working with my dentist to find an ap...
— Cary Duncan, Posted October 1st 2021 on google
I'm so glad I went here. I can't say I enjoyed it or that it was comfortable but I had a tooth with really deep roots and I kept burning through the anesthesia. I think I counted 8 shots before I was done. However, I believe anyone else would have made this uncomfortable experience incredibly painful. Fortunately, ...
— Kristi Smith, Posted September 9th 2021 on google
I got in on short notice for a root canal. So grateful that they worked through lunch to help me out! Very friendly staff!
— Jim Lampe, Posted September 8th 2021 on google
Dr Lecheminant and his assistant Kim are extremely knowledable, thorough and empathetic. I had a root canal done and needed followup, and they always take excellent care of me, and are very conscious of my extreme sesitivity as well -Great provider!!!

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 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


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.

We work hard at Greater Endodontics to help you get back to a brighter and pain-free smile.
