Cuts, lacerations or other wounds to the lips, tongue and cheek are all considered soft tissue trauma. Treatment varies depending on each patient’s condition. However, a usual appointment begins with a discussion about what caused your recent trauma. From there, the dentist conducts a thorough physical exam of the area, looking for relevant things such as tooth or bone damage, as well as pieces of chipped teeth. In most cases, superficial wounds heal on their own however larger cuts may need stitches. The dentist may also prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection.
Damage to your teeth can be a result of a sports injury, chewing on hard objects, or just an accident. Treatment for a broken or chipped tooth depends on the extent of damage. You might need a tooth filling, a dental crown, or root canal. Chipped or broken teeth can also sometimes be fixed with veneers.
Toothaches are commonly caused by tooth decay, an abscessed tooth, infected gums, tooth fracture, or a damaged filling. The root cause of a toothache helps determine the appropriate treatment. To get a better idea, your dentist will do a physical examination of your mouth, teeth, gums, jaw, and tongue. Based on our findings, possible treatments can include extraction and antibiotics. If an infected nerve is the problem, a root canal may be necessary.Call our office to schedule an appointment.
