An endodontist always works to save teeth. If you have a dislodged tooth, resulting from a traumatic injury, you should immediately make an emergency appointment to see our endodontist at New City Endodontics. Our endodontists, Dr. Maria Vinieris and Dr. George Mastromihalis will be able to help you with your tooth emergency, including if you have dislodged teeth in New City.
People can experience many different types of traumatic injuries to their teeth. Our endodontists are able to treat a variety of problems that result from a patient having a traumatic dental injury, including dislodged teeth in New City. When a tooth is dislodged, it means that a tooth has been pushed back into its socket. If the tooth is pushed only partially out of the socket, our endodontist is often able to reposition and stabilize the tooth. This will allow the tooth to once again securely take root in your mouth, and securely remain in place. This can occur if the pulp has remained healthy, and then no other treatment will be necessary. Oftentimes, however, the pulp can become damaged or infected when there is tooth trauma. When a tooth has infected pulp, our endodontist will need to perform a root canal treatment in order to save the tooth. When a patient has a tooth injury they will generally have root canal treatment within several weeks of the injury. During the root canal procedure, a medication will be placed inside the tooth. There will then be a permanent root canal filling placed in the canal, which will be sealed as well. Hopefully the tooth will not experience any type of reinfection and healing will be complete. Root canal treatments are effective in saving teeth in over 90% of cases. At our endodontist practice we use state-of-the-art equipment and procedures so that our patients remain comfortable during the treatment, and so that the tooth has the best chance of being saved.
When you have dislodged teeth in New City, we urge you to contact our office immediately for an appointment.
