The most common dental trauma is a broken or lost tooth.

Dental trauma may be inflicted in a number of ways: contact sports, motor vehicle accidents, fights, falls, eating hard foods, drinking hot liquids, and other such mishaps. As oral tissues are highly sensitive, injuries to the mouth are typically very painful. Dental trauma should receive prompt treatment from a dentist.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Emergency Treatment” tab_id=”1442490657736-023c7499-f05b”][vc_column_text]Any dental treatment in need of immediate attention. Can be related to acute or chronic type pain, and associated with swollen face/cheeks, tooth mobility, cracked teeth and dental infection, just to name a few.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Oral Sedation” tab_id=”1442490659004-2721f517-a4a5″][vc_column_text]A way to relax during a dental procedure by use of medications or gas (Nitrous Oxide) while remaining conscious. Usually helpful for patients with bad previous dental experiences, kids, or anxious patients.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”External Resorption” tab_id=”1443915926194-8c6bb764-4b99″][vc_column_text]A condition of a tooth where the root surface is lost. This can be caused by chronic inflammation, cysts, tumors, trauma, reimplantation of a tooth, or sometimes the cause is unknown.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Internal Resorption” tab_id=”1443915972525-5fad7705-9c78″][vc_column_text]An unusual condition of a tooth when the dentin and pulpal walls begin to
resorb centrally within the root canal. The first evidence of the lesion may be the appearance of a pink-hued area on the crown of the tooth and represents the hyperplastic, vascular pulp tissue filling-in the resorbed areas. Treatment may vary, from root canal therapy to surgical intervention, depending on the severity of the case[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Root Amputation” tab_id=”1443916033783-5e9c76e1-b4b5″][vc_column_text]Complete removal of one or more roots of a multi-rooted tooth due to poor functionality and/or poor overall prognosis of the tooth (periodontal disease, caries, iatrogenic cause, bone loss, non-resolving infection). Usually a surgical procedure, performed with the aid of a surgical microscope.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Root Hemisection” tab_id=”1443916090649-28400612-92cf”][vc_column_text]Partial removal of one or more roots of a multi-rooted tooth due to infection, extensive decay, periodontal disease and other causes. This procedure is performed in cases where eliminating part of the root will lead to a better overall success of the tooth and its supporting structure, whereas retaining the entire tooth will lead to a definite failure.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Intentional Replantation” tab_id=”1443916180963-2f56ffed-d2db”][vc_column_text]Usually considered a last resort endodontic procedure where a root canal treatment or other treatment (surgery) is performed on a tooth that is purposefully extracted out of the mouth for a short time period (10-15 min), and repositioned back into the same extraction socket (cleaned out of cyst, if required) after the necessary treatment is completed. The tooth is then stabilized by splinting it to adjacent teeth.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Root Canal Treatment” tab_id=”1443917090770-87db5494-f4f8″][vc_column_text]Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment is a procedure performed to eliminate the soft tissue (pulp) inside the tooth when it becomes irritated or inflamed. This treatment may be required due to a variety of reasons, such as deep caries, broken and/or missing restorations, cracked teeth, etc. The goal of root canal therapy is the elimination of infection and protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. Following removal of the nerve tissue, the root canals subsequently shaped, cleaned, and and filled with a special root canal filling material that is inert and biocompatible. The usual duration of treatment is 45 min-1 hr, and it is performed under local anasthesia.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Root Canal Retreatment” tab_id=”1443917158069-92815ac7-93d0″][vc_column_text]Although root canal treatment is a very successful procedure, sometimes a previously root canal treated tooth needs to be retreated. There are several reasons for root canal retreatment, such as complicated root canal anatomy, missed canals, delay of a permanent restoration, reoccurrence of symptoms, etc. During this procedure the endodontist will reopen the tooth and reclean the previously treated canals once again. If the tooth in question is already restored with a permanent crow, removal of this crown may in some cases be necessary. Due to the complexity of the treatment, a second visit may be needed for completion of the retreatment. Each of these visits is approximately 45 minutes long. Lastly, the success rate of an endodontic treatment is in the high eighties (85-89%)[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Endodontic Surgery” tab_id=”1443917224535-7b23b8cf-24d2″][vc_column_text]Endodontic surgery, also known as apicoectomy or root end resection, is an endodontic surgical procedure where a tip of the root is removed and a root end cavity is prepared and filled with a special root end filling material, which is biocompatible. This procedure is usually considered to be the last resort at saving the tooth, when a conventional root canal therapy had failed and attempted re-treatment was unsuccessful or is not advised. The endodontic surgery is made possible by the use of microsurgical techniques, such as a dental operating microscope, micro instruments, ultrasonic preparation tips and calcium-silicate based filling materials. The surgery is performed in the office under local anesthesia. Patients are expected to follow post-surgical treatment protocol to insure the best healing outcome.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row]
