Dental Injuries to Know About Aside from Impact Trauma

Posted on 10/5/2020 by Weo Admin
Dental Injuries to Know About Aside from Impact Trauma While it might seem strange to consider an injury without trauma, there are some cases where your teeth and mouth are harmed without a blow to the head or mouth. Those injuries can include a chipped tooth, a tooth fracture, a cut on the gums or a loose tooth. So, how does someone injure themselves without trauma? It's easier than you think.

How Injuries Occur

Sometimes those injuries can happen when we are not paying attention to what we are doing. We might be chewing on a pen, a piece of hard candy, or even ice and a realize a piece of a tooth has broken off. We might lose a filling, crown or other dental work in the same way which is why when patients have those dental appliances, they should avoid eating those kinds of foods and should not chew on pens or pencils.

Patients sometimes injury themselves by just every day normal wear and tear. Erosion can be considered a type of injury. It is the slow wear and tear over time of a patient's oral cavity. Through erosion, fractures, chips or infections can occur.

Treatment for those types of injuries can entail dental bonding where a resin is used to fill in the gaps or the missing tooth material. Crowns can also be used to hold the fractured pieces together. If the chip is small enough even just a standard filling can be used to rebuild it.

In some cases, eating hard food or food with sharp edges can damage the tooth or the gum. Usually, putting some ice on the site will keep the swelling down and alleviate any discomfort from the injury. Rinsing the mouth out with saltwater can keep a cut from getting infected.

If you have questions about dental injuries without trauma do not hesitate to call with your questions. We are always willing to help patients.

The first step to a healthy beautiful smile is to schedule an appointment.
