South Jersey Endodontics, PA, knows dental injuries could happen at any time and we offer emergency services combined with the latest endodontic techniques to make sure you can get the treatment you require.
No matter how severe your dental injury may be, we can help you get on the road to recovery and back to your life.
Dislodged teeth - Injuries to the mouth can cause teeth to be pushed back into their sockets. Your endodontist or general dentist may reposition and stabilize your tooth. Root canal treatment is usually started within a few weeks of the injury and a medication, such as calcium hydroxide, will be placed inside the tooth. Eventually, a permanent root canal filling will be placed inside the root.
Sometimes a tooth may be pushed partially out of the socket. Again, your endodontist or general dentist may reposition and stabilize your tooth. If the pulp remains healthy, then no other treatment is necessary. Yet, if the pulp becomes damaged or infected, root canal treatment will be required.
Avulsed teeth - If an injury causes a tooth to be completely knocked out of your mouth, it is important that you are treated immediately! If possible, put it back into the socket without cleaning the tooth. If not, a tooth can be saved if it remains moist. You can even put the tooth in milk or spit but NOT water. Your Endodontist may start root canal treatment based upon the stage of root development. The length of time the tooth was out of your mouth and the way the tooth was stored, may influence the type of treatment you receive.
