Dental trauma is unpredictable. It is not something most dental patients think of everyday, so it is good to have a plan in place. Most people know who to call for a medical emergency, but do you have our office number posted so your kids know who to call if they chip a tooth or have a sports related injury in the backyard? You can be ready for dental accidents by simply posting our number in an obvious place for all members of the family to see.
How We Minimize Dental Trauma
Since the majority of dental trauma accidents occur unexpectedly, it is important to know what to do when they happen. Having a plan is important so you know to call us and can do so quickly. We have a plan too. We want to manage your trauma well by providing first aid, examining your dental trauma, and treating your issue. Our goal is to see you fully recover.
If you or someone you know has ever experienced dental trauma, you would understand the importance of reducing pain and controlling anxiety after the trauma occurs. We have several ways to do that. We use topical anesthetics to numb the area in your mouth or gums where the dental work will be done. Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, helps patients to feel relaxed. This sedative is safe, and the effects wear off quickly after the gas is turned off. We also have other sedatives and anesthesia available to help mitigate the trauma.
Trauma Requires Action
Give our office a call immediately if you experience an unexpected dental trauma. We're ready to help you get the pain under control and treat your dental issues. We have a variety of medicines and techniques to help reduce pain and control anxiety in the unfortunate event of a dental trauma.
