In the event of a dental injury or emergency, endodontists are the best choice for providing quality treatment and care practices to manage pain and preserve natural teeth.
With spring here and summer just around the corner, many people are eager to get back outside and enjoy their favorite activities. Whether it is taking a jog around town, heading to the park for a game or gathering, or getting back into a favorite sport, this season is a great time to get active again. While being active is an ideal way to enjoy the weather and improve health, there is always the possibility of an unexpected injury or accident. While most dental injuries occur in children and teenagers, a traumatic experience can affect anyone. Many dental injuries are the result of a sports mishap, a bad fall, or an unexpected collision with another person or the general surroundings. When this happens, it is not uncommon to damage a tooth. In such cases, it is important to see a dentist or specialist quickly to prevent further damage or loss of the tooth.
Seek Immediate Care
Whenever a patient has an accident or tooth damage, it is important to visit the dentist right away. After completing an exam and consultation, the dentist can recommend the best way to proceed with treatment based on the circumstances and severity of the injury. The goal of all dental providers is to preserve the natural tooth whenever possible and the good news is there is a wide array of treatment options now available that can help accomplish this.
Saving a tooth through high quality endodontic care should always be the goal of a patient and dental provider. There are many benefits to preserving a natural tooth versus extraction. These include:
- Preservation of efficient chewing capabilities
- Preservation of normal biting force
- Preservation of a natural appearance
- Limitation of ongoing expensive dental treatments
Rely on Specialized Treatments
When it comes to handling a severe dental injury, it is recommended that patients seek out specialized endodontic care. Your general dentist can provide a reference for a doctor they know and trust who has the expert training necessary to offer the best treatment and care. Endodontists often offer flexibility in accommodating emergency cases and provide the highest level of pain management techniques and treatments. They can collaborate with your general dentist to provide a comprehensive treatment plan that is in your best interest and provides the highest level of care. This way, you can recover more quickly and return to your favorite activities once again.
