How a Dentist Can Help After Your Motorcycle Accident

Dr. Rickerby has proudly served the Jersey City community for over 25 years now and has helped many victims of bicycle and motorcycle accidents recover from their facial trauma. The team at Journal Square Dental can help with every single part of the process, including the following steps:

Pre-Reconstructive Work

Before any procedures or healing treatments can begin, your dentist will first need to conduct a full consultation and examination. This can include X-rays and moldings to get a better idea of what can be restored naturally and what needs to be replaced synthetically. If you have any avulsed teeth that were able to be saved or kept in water or milk, your dentist can attempt to place them in the socket and encourage healing with a periodontal splint. 

If you are in need of a dental implant, this takes a couple of visits to shape the cap and allow the implant area to heal.  

Restorative Work

Facial trauma as a direct result of a motorcycle accident can include avulsed teeth, luxated teeth, fractured teeth, and the puncturing of the soft tissue of the mouth. Depending on the overall status of your injury and your oral health, the restorative work may need to first address the sturdiness of your gums. For example, if you are a good candidate for a dental implant, it is pertinent that your gums are able to support them. 

Gum grafts, bone grafts, dental implants, dental bridges, and the All-on-4 procedure are all common procedures used to help restore the natural function of your mouth and smile. The main priority of your dentist is to make sure that you speak, chew, and bite regularly. Depending on how many teeth you need to have replaced, there are a variety of options available when it comes to implants or missing teeth replacements. Your dentist will discuss the options with you and make you aware of the benefits and cons of each option with your specific situation. 

Cosmetic Work

Another large part of the reconstruction process is the aesthetics of your smile and mouth. The functionality is very important, but so is your overall confidence. Your smile should bring you joy and not be something you are self-conscious of due to your accident. Journal Square Dental provides a multitude of cosmetic dentistry options, and even offers a Smile Makeover package to encompass all possible routes in one. 

Dr. Rickerby can help you with the straightening of your teeth, the whiteness of your teeth, and even help cover any discoloration, chipping, or cracks with a set of porcelain veneers. 


Reconstructive surgery does not end with the final surgical procedure. It will also involve a series of checkups to ensure everything is healing properly and correctly and that there were no hiccups along the way. Your dentist will also likely want to establish a series of professional cleanings to maintain the look and health of your reconstructive treatment. If you take care of your new implants and healed treatments, they can last you a lifetime and be a permanent addition to your smile.
