Dental Accidents & Trauma

Dental Accidents & Trauma

Service Description

There are many causes of tooth fractures or tooth loss (avulsion) such as accidents, falls, and sports injuries.

The most common trauma is a fracture in the tooth’s crown (the visible part of your tooth).  In school-age children and adolescents, falls and trauma are the most common injuries to the tooth.  And, in adults, trauma to teeth is usually caused by car accidents, falls, or a sports injury.

Often a tooth that has been traumatized or lost can be restored through cosmetic dentistry.  Teeth that are chipped or fractured can be fixed with porcelain veneers or crown placement.  Teeth that have been completely knocked out may be restored with dental implants.  Our dentist, Dr. Ihor Bohay, has over 30 years of experience working with repairing and restoring teeth that have been fractured or knocked out.
