Dental accidents happen.
A root canal is sometimes required when trama to the tooth fractures the dental crown or root. Dental accidents happen - and after a traumatic dental injury, an endodontic procedure will save the tooth from extraction.
With trauma management, a thorough examination will be conducted of the injured tooth. This generally includes taking radiographs of the hard tissue and soft tissue, in order to allow for proper diagnosis and treatment planning.
In some cases, just a follow-up visit will be sufficient in managing dental trauma.
