Patient TJ (Age 26) – Emergency Treatment for Dental Trauma
TJ called us late on a Wednesday evening as an emergency patient. He had come in after falling of his skateboard which resulted in fracturing of his front incisors, a bloody chin and bruised ego. Fortunately he did not lose his teeth completely and he acted promptly after the accident.
After initial assessments, both of TJ’s teeth were restored with conservative bonded restorations to reduce sensitivity. He was advised to switch to a soft diet for several days to allow his gums to heal and to monitor the teeth for future changes.
Apart from a soft diet for several days and regular reviews to ensure no internal damage occurs, TJ was very fortunate to escape without additional trauma.
CLEARFIL™ MAJESTY ES-2 (a nano-filled composite) was used to provide an aesthetic and natural looking finish which is indistinguishable from the surrounding tooth.
