Call Us if You Need a Dental Reconstruction Treatment

Dental ReconstructionWe offer dental reconstruction procedures for patients who damage their teeth in an accident, needing to restore functionality and appearance. We also provide preventative care with teeth cleanings and dental exams. Many patients never consider that they will be in a major accident or need restorative work as a result. People who take care of their teeth can only do so much to prepare for a dental accident. Fortunately, we can offer patients the necessary services following a dental accident.

Dental Accidents

Even the most basic of accidents impacts millions of people every year. According to the National Fall Safety Institute, one out of three people over the age of 65 will have a slip or fall accident every year. However, it is more than the elderly that are influenced. Both men and women of all ages can suffer from this type of accident and 9 million people visit the emergency room every year as a result. People cannot predict when an emergency will strike or how an accident will happen.

When a patient sustains an injury, the emergency room is the best bet for immediate care. However, if the injury is only to the teeth, then the patient will want to seek professional dental care. While an emergency room can treat a plethora of injuries, they cannot repair or replace teeth. An emergency room will only be able to triage the wound and send the patient to a dentist.

An experienced dentist is the only professional with the proper training in how to correct dental problems. Depending on how severe the accident and damage was, the patient may only need one restoration or may require a full dental reconstruction. Regardless of how extensive the damage is, we can help.

We have the technology to repair a smile

In most cases, teeth are broken or chipped during an accident but the damage is not too extensive. Occasionally, however, teeth can be hurt, be knocked out, and the jaw damaged due to a car wreck, fall, etc. In this case, the dental reconstruction would include multiple procedures.

For example, the patient might need oral surgery to fix a broken, cracked, or damaged jaw. The patient may require dental implants to permanently replace any missing teeth (or a dental bridge if the patient prefers). The patient may then need dental crowns to cap, restore, and protect the chipped or cracked teeth. Working together, these restorative solutions can restore both the appearance and function of the teeth. There is no way to predict which procedures require just like there is no way to predict when an accident might strike.

What we can do is provide you with an immediate appointment if you do injure your teeth and we can make treatment recommendations right away so that you can become comfortable again. If you are ever in this situation, give New Image Dentistry a call at (615) 526-2493.
