Dental work like dental bridges, dental veneers, and dental crowns are typically created from durable materials that are intended to replicate the original durability of natural tooth enamel. However, they can still suffer chips and fractures from unnatural activities like grinding your teeth, or improvising your teeth to open a package.
The damage to the dental work can vary in severity. If a blow to the face has caused significant oral trauma, there are first-aid steps you can take to help minimize complications.
You should not attempt to clean, brush, floss or manipulate any part of the damaged dental work. If you have blood or unwanted material in your mouth, you can rinse it away with a little lukewarm saltwater. Any other necessary cleaning procedures should be reserved by our dental technicians at our Hampton, VA, dental office.
After assessing the severity of the problem, our team will recommend the most applicable treatment method. This might include replacing the damaged dental work or administering endodontic therapy. If you are in the Hampton, VA, or Hampton Roads, VA, areas and you have damaged dental work, you should not delay in calling 757-637-6763 to have it examined and treated at Morrison Dental Group today!
