A Blow to the Face Can Cause a Toothache without Obvious Trauma to the Tooth

A blow to the face caused by a sports injury or a household accident can cause obvious soft tissue trauma. At the same time, it can also affect the root or internal structures of a tooth without any appreciable change in the tooth’s enamel layer.

Even if the pain isn’t immediate inflammation can start to build up in the area causing a worsening toothache.

In a situation like this, you should not delay in seeking care from a professional dentist like Dr. [doctor_name]. In a short amount of time [heshe] can examine the tooth, take some X-rays, or perform other diagnostics to determine the severity of the problem.

If the trauma to the tooth is significant, Dr. [doctor_name] might recommend performing a root canal. This simple endodontic therapy will extract any traumatized tissues while also rebuilding the internal structure of the tooth. This will provide sufficient structure to anchor an eventual dental crown.

If the damage is severe, or the bone structure of the dental socket has been significantly traumatized, [heshe] might recommend a total extraction. After your gums have fully healed, [heshe] can help you choose the dental restoration treatment that’s right for you.

If you are in the [city], [state] area and you are experiencing toothache pain from a recent blow to the face, you should call [phone] to schedule an appointment at [practice_name].
