It is imperative to know what to do if you are in an unlikely situation where you lose a tooth from trauma. The term for a tooth that is lost due to an injury is an “avulsed tooth.” When a fraction of a tooth breaks off but leaves the root inside the socket, it is called a tooth fracture. In the case of a tooth fracture, the root will likely need to be extracted or at least require a root canal. An avulsed tooth may be salvageable if you follow these steps:

Dental implants are always the best option for replacing missing teeth, for function, aesthetics and longevity. Dental implants can be used in cases with one missing tooth or an entire arch of missing teeth. Advancements in the dental field in the last 20 years have created more and better options for patients who have experienced tooth loss, whether it’s due to trauma/injury, gum disease or cavities. A dental implant comprises a titanium screw inserted into the bone where the missing tooth is left to heal for several months with a temporary crown placed on top. Once the screw is integrated and fused into the bone, a permanent dental crown is placed on top to match the shape, colour and appearance of the surrounding teeth. Listed below are the benefits of dental implants:

Cavities, What Are They?
A cavity is an area of cavitation in the tooth enamel (outer tooth structure) and dentin (inner tooth structure) caused by oral bacteria and acids. When sugars are consumed, they get converted into acids in the mouth, which then attack the enamel of the teeth. The acids slowly demineralize the outer structure of the teeth and leads to cavities over time. Cavities most commonly affect the deep grooves and fissures on the biting surfaces of the molars and the in-between surfaces of the teeth, which are both problematic areas to adequately clean. It is vital to catch cavities in their earliest stages, so minimally invasive treatment can be provided. Dental x-rays are an essential tool for diagnostic purposes and are used to catch cavities early before they are visible and start causing pain.
