Dental trauma is injury to the mouth, including teeth, lips, gums, tongue, and jawbones. Soft tissue injuries to the mouth and dental trauma are typically very painful and should receive prompt treatment. The most common dental trauma is a broken or lost tooth. If you sustain any dental injuries, seek a dentist's advice immediately. If you have the fractured piece of tooth with you, bring it along to the dentist. It is sometimes possible to put it back.
Dental trauma may be inflicted in a number of ways:
- contact sports
- motor vehicle accidents
- fist fights and wrestlingfalls at home
- eating hard foods and drinking hot liquids
Infection is a common complication, but can be managed with a course of antibiotics. With timely interventions and appropriate treatment, the prognosis for healing following dental trauma is good.

"My 4 yr old daughter and I had the most pleasant experience thanks to Dr. Karrie, Jennifer and Mr. Danny. I’m so happy to have Dr. Karrie as my daughters dentist, shes so sweet and really knows how to handle kids with so much patience, and loved the way she explained to my little girl the steps taken to count her teeth, what the tools do etc. Really knows how to set in the trust needed for a little kid to let her work on them. And Jennifer was also amazing with my daughter. Truly love this place."- L.G. / Google / Mar 06, 2021
