Dental trauma refers to injuries or wounds occurring in teeth, gums, or oral tissues due to accidents, falls, or any traumatic event such as a sports incident.

Emergencies wait for no one, and receiving prompt and quality dental care is the kind of assistance your children deserve. Swift attention and expert treatment are crucial to prevent further damage, alleviate pain, and begin dental health recovery.

What are the most common types of dental traumas?

Some of the most common types of emergencies, which are often extremely painful, include:

If a child experiences an emergency, it is important to react as quickly as possible. Receiving professional care from a team trained to work with children can completely change the situation.

Restoring calm and dental health

Solutions for different types of dental trauma will vary not only based on the situation but also depending on the patient in question. For damaged or fractured teeth, various solutions such as fillings, bonding, or dental crowns can restore dental function and structure.

If there is an injury to soft tissue, it may require professional cleaning and possibly stitches. The experience of a professional can mean the difference between minimal anesthesia and a procedure without additional pain, with well-executed stitches and advice on wound care; or a traumatic experience filled with pain.

Once our team assesses the specific case or trauma and alleviates the patient’s suffering, necessary treatment is performed. A professional who takes the time to communicate with the child and successfully calm their pain is invaluable.

This is our goal at Children’s Dentistry of Abilene: to improve the dental visit experience for children. If you have a dental emergency, call us immediately.
