Traumatic Injuries

What Is Considered a Traumatic Injury?

A dislodged tooth is one that has been partially pushed into or out of its socket or sideways during an injury. If this happens, Dr. Habas is uniquely trained to treat the tooth. Many times, the tooth is repositioned and stabilized, but root canal treatment is needed within a few days following the injury to save the tooth.

Knocked Out Tooth (Avulsed Tooth)

More than 5 million teeth are knocked out every year in children and adults! With proper emergency action, a tooth that has been knocked-out can be replaced into the socket and last for years.
