Traumatic Dental Injuries
Traumatic dental injuries can happen to patients of all ages, and are often the result of a sports-related injury or a serious accident. Even if you are unsure of the severity of your traumatic dental injury, it is always best to see an endodontist because they can diagnose problems that you may not know are there.
Dental traumas usually require endodontic procedures, such as root canal, to clean and protect the tooth from infection and other complications. Remember, when it comes to dental trauma, time is of the essence. At Mount Pleasant Endodontics, we offer same-day appointments for patients with traumatic dental injuries. Contact us immediately and get the care you need.
What Qualifies as a Dental Emergency?
Any cracked, chipped, or broken tooth qualifies as a dental emergency. Regardless of how the injury happened, or whether or not it is painful, you need to get emergency help right away. Even minor tooth damage can lead to larger complications such as infection, so make an appointment with Mount Pleasant Endodontics for all types of tooth damage. We offer same-day appointments because we understand the importance of addressing any type of dental trauma as soon as possible.
If you have experienced a serious dental injury, please give us a call immediately so we can restore your tooth and protect your smile.
