Case Study – Dental Trauma
An 8 year old girl broke her two front teeth in July 2013 as a result of a fall. Her parents retrieved the broken fragments and contacted my surgery immediately for consultation.
Fortunately the breaks were through the enamel and dentin only leaving the pulps intact. This removed the need for complex root canal treatment.
Local anesthetic was administered as the teeth were quite sensitive, rubber dam placed around the teeth and the fragments reattached giving the patient an excellent aesthetic result.
