What is Dental Trauma?
The most common type of traumatic dental injury is a chipped tooth. As resilient as our teeth are, excessive wear and tear or a blow to the mouth can lead to chips. And some lifestyle factors, such as poor oral hygiene habits, grinding one’s teeth, and a diet high in acidic foods can weaken teeth over time. Finally, weak teeth are more likely to chip.
Less common injuries include broken or dislodged teeth. This type of damage is more likely to result from a serious accident. Regardless of the type of injury, dental trauma should always be examined by a dentist as soon as possible. Neighboring teeth might have also suffered undetected injuries that a dentist will be able to diagnose. The sooner you can get in to see a dental professional, the sooner they can ease any pain you might be feeling and restore your smile.
