Trauma To Baby Teeth Causing Dental Injuries
At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Bayside Medical Centre we love providing dental treatment for children in our family dental practice. We know from experience that managing traumatic dental injuries in children is distressing for children and parents. Smile Hub Dental Clinic prides itself in providing excellent clinical treatment and follow up to ensure that your child’s tooth has the best possible short and long-term care.
If your child’s dental injury is not treated this can result in death of the tooth’s nerve, infection or other complications such as root resorption. An injury to a primary tooth in a child can negatively impact the formation of permanent teeth resulting in future discolouration and malformations on your child’s permanent tooth.
At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Bayside Medical Centre, Bayside Shopping Centre, Sutton, Dublin 13 we regularly treat children who have experienced a luxation injury resulting in the tooth coming completely out of the mouth or being intruded. These luxation injuries can also include injuries where the child’s tooth is moved in the socket and is loose and painful in it’s incorrect position. These types of paediatric dental injuries are referred to as concussion, subluxation, lateral luxation or extrusion. Avulsion is where your child’s tooth has completely come out of his/her mouth as a result of their dental injury.
Children may also fracture their teeth. Sometimes when children break, chip or crack their teeth it can be an enamel fracture, an enamel into dentine fracture of a complicated fracture involving enamel, dentine and their dental pulp (nerve). Children can also experience crown-root fractures, root fractures and jawbone fractures.
If your child has experienced trauma to their baby or adult teeth please contact Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Sutton, Dublin 13 immediately. One of our experienced dentists in dental paediatric trauma can examine your child immediately and advise you on any recommended dental treatment.
