Common Bicycle Accident Injuries That a Qualified Dentist Can Help With

Bicycle accidents can vary in severity, depending on a variety of factors. This can include the state of health your teeth were in before the accident, the severity of the accident itself, and more. Common bicycle accident injuries include, but are not limited to: 

  • Avulsed (knocked out) teeth
  • Luxated teeth
  • Puncturing of the soft tissue, like your gums or palate
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Fractured teeth

Your dentist will do everything possible to keep the natural look and function of your teeth. When your tooth is avulsed or luxated, which means it is still in the socket but has been misaligned, your dentist will work to restore it to its natural place. For teeth that have been knocked out entirely, your dentist may be able to place them back in the socket and restore their sturdiness with a periodontal splint. To help preserve the tooth before getting to the dentist, you can pick it up with sanitized hands if possible and place it in water to help keep it clean from bacteria. 

For cracked or chipped teeth, there are a variety of options available, including inlays, onlays, or even a full dental cap, like a veneer. Your dentist’s first priority is the restoration of your mouth’s full function. This means you should be able to bite, chew, and speak normally. Once this has been fixed, they can help with the cosmetic restoration, or the aesthetics, of your smile. With chipped or cracked teeth, this may involve multiple visits to recreate the look in a way you are satisfied with. 

Why Choose Journal Square Dental?

At Journal Square Dental, our top priority is the look, feel, and function of your smile. This means applying a people-first approach to the world of dentistry and having a team of qualified dental professionals by your side for every step of the process. This includes the initial consultation and examination, where our team will assess the damage done by your bicycle accident. 

From there, we will devise a plan of action to restore the look and feel of your smile. This can involve multiple steps, depending on the accident and how bad the damage is. If any teeth were able to be saved after they were knocked out, we will begin by treating them. From there, any cuts or gashes in the gums or palate will be sutured, and luxated teeth will be relocated to their sockets and natural alignment. 

Journal Square Dental is unique because we focus on both the restorative and cosmetic aspects of dentistry. Our Smile Makeover package includes a full range of aesthetic procedures meant to target any insecurities for those who have been victim to facial trauma or gum disease. This includes teeth straightening with Invisalign, teeth whitening, the placement of porcelain veneers to hide any discoloration or chipping, and dental bonding.

By targeting any areas of insecurity, Dr. Rickerby is able to completely transform your smile, turning your facial trauma injuries into a newly-formed smile. This is not only beneficial to your overall confidence and well-being, but to the status of your oral health as well.
