|One of the keys to getting the right type of treatment for an injury is to find the right doctor. There are so many different types of doctors, it is not always easy to make the right choice.
Many people think that they need to head to our office for a checkup or for a toothache, but the reality is that there are some injuries where we are the best choice for treatment.
The biggest problem that people have with their teeth is cavities and gum disease. These are issues that take time to progress. These are not the only types of problems that people have with their oral health. Traumatic injuries happen. When people suffer a traumatic injury to their mouth or teeth, they need to seek our help as soon as possible. These are some common traumatic injuries that we treat.
Chipped and Broken Teeth
Teeth are strong, but they can chip and break. Accidents can lead to this type of traumatic injury. A broken or chipped tooth may not always hurt, but it can lead to more problems. It is best to do something to take care a broken or chipped tooth before the injury gets worse.
A dislocated tooth occurs when a tooth gets moved out of its socket into another position. The tooth is still intact, but it can damage other teeth or cause discomfort and pain. Putting the tooth back in place is possible in our office.
Knocked out Teeth
While this is not the most common type of injury we treat, it does happen. It is important to repair the damage that getting a tooth knocked out causes before more problems occur.
If you suffer a facial injury, you need to get help. Make sure that you get to the right place for help. In many cases, that place is our office.
