At Thousand Smiles, we focus in providing comprehensive dental trauma treatment and care in London. Whether it’s an accidental fall, a sports-related injury, or any other facial impact, we are equipped to handle a wide range of dental traumas effectively. The treatment approach we employ depends on the severity of the trauma.
If your teeth have been knocked out of position, the typical solution involves replanting and splinting. If a tooth has been completely knocked out, it is crucial to handle it carefully. Clean the tooth gently, hold it by the crown (the visible part), and if possible, try to place it back into its socket. If reinsertion is not possible, store the tooth in a glass of milk to keep it moist. It’s important to ensure that the tooth does not dry out and that the root is not further damaged. We strongly recommend seeking immediate dental attention within the first hour after the dental trauma. However, we understand that immediate access to a dentist may not always be possible. In such cases, taking good care of the tooth and keeping it in appropriate conditions can increase the chances of successful reattachment.
If you experience dental trauma, please contact us as soon as possible at Thousand Smiles. Our skilled team will provide the necessary care and guidance to address your specific situation and increase the likelihood of a positive outcome.
To splint a displaced tooth, a common approach is to attach a piece of wire or a similar orthodontic device to the surface of the affected teeth. This helps keep the teeth in their proper position while they heal. The duration of the splinting treatment typically ranges from 2 to 4 weeks. During this time, it is important to have regular evaluations with your dentist to monitor your progress and promptly address any potential infections or complications that may arise. This ensures that appropriate treatment can be administered in a timely manner.
For a less severe chipped or cracked tooth, one option for treatment is to fill the missing part with a composite filling material. Composite fillings are tooth-coloured and can effectively restore the appearance and functionality of the tooth. This treatment approach aims to repair the damaged area and prevent further complications. At Thousand Smiles, our dental team will carefully assess your specific dental trauma and provide you with the most appropriate treatment options. We are dedicated to ensuring your oral health and well-being throughout the healing process.
