An Endodontist May Be Needed to Treat a Traumatized Tooth

Posted .

Household accidents and sports injuries can harm your mouth just like any other part of your body. When a tooth suffers significant trauma the pain and discomfort can be severe. In a situation like this, you turn to the specialist treatment offered by a trained endodontist.

Here at Dr. Stephen T. McInerney’s endodontic clinic in Bingham Farms, Michigan, he can assess the severity of the trauma to the tooth and the most applicable treatment method. This often calls for performing a root canal.

This special endodontic therapy will remove the tooth enamel layer and extract any damaged internal tissues from the tooth. Once this is done Dr. Stephen T. McInerney will rebuild sufficient structure necessary to eventually anchor a dental crown.

This piece of dental work will need to be created in a dental lab. After casting an impression, Dr. Stephen T. McInerney will protect the area with a temporary crown. If it’s warranted, Dr. Stephen T. McInerney might also provide you with a prescription for anti-inflammatory or pain management medication.

A member of Root Canal Specialists, PC will call you back into our clinic when your dental crown is ready. Dr. Stephen T. McInerney will cement it in place with a strong dental adhesive to fully restore the tooth’s presence in your mouth.

If you are in the Bingham Farms, Michigan, area and you have suffered a significant dental trauma, you should call 248-540-9191 to seek endodontic treatment from Dr. Stephen T. McInerney.
