Traumatic Injury

Traumatic injury to the teeth is a common dental problem which is usually an emergency requiring prompt attention. This attention may consist of diagnosis and simple treatment of the soft tissues and a tooth filling. In more extreme circumstances, reposition of the tooth or replantation of the lost tooth may be required along with root canal treatment.

The experience and the promptness of handling the emergency situation will differ for the permanent young tooth versus the fully matured tooth.
