Dental trauma is injury to the mouth, including teeth, lips, gums, tongue, and jawbones. The most common dental trauma is a broken or avulsed tooth. We primarily treat displaced, loosened, or avulsed teeth. Most traumatic injuries occur in children although anyone can have trauma to their teeth. The treatment is determined by the severity of the injury and can range from simply monitoring the traumatized teeth over time to repositioning or reimplanting loose or avulsed teeth. Many traumatic injuries damage the pulp of the tooth. When the pulp becomes damaged or inflamed from the trauma, root canal treatment may be necessary.
