Repairing Teeth After Accidents in Indiana

When you have a dental emergency, you need to find a dentist who can handle your care from start to finish. Your St. John dentist Dr. Kapers is here to provide you quality and comprehensive care.

There’s no telling when accidents will happen – or when you’ll experience that debilitating dental pain. The only thing you can determine is who will be handling your dental care Indiana if or when that dental emergency occurs.

At Creating Smiles, we offer fillings and root canals that can instantly relieve your dental pain, all-ceramic dental crowns that can repair your teeth, and dental implants to replace missing teeth. There’s no dental situation that our St. John or Valparaiso offices have not treated. We can even see you on the same day you call!

However, just so you can be prepared, here’s how we help you in your time of need:

Broken or Chipped Teeth: Broken or chipped teeth – either caused by trauma or tooth decay – can often be fixed by covering the healthy portion of the tooth with a dental crown. A crown is placed over the base of your tooth and strengthens the healthy portion of your tooth from future decay or breakage.

Dislodged Teeth: Losing a tooth in an accident can be a very nerve-racking and traumatic experience. If you happen to knock out any of your teeth from their socket, it’s important to know that you’re under a time constraint. If you can find your teeth, pick them up by the crown – never the root – and place them under your tongue. We have a much higher likelihood of reconnecting the teeth if they stay in their natural environment inside your mouth.

If your dislodged teeth can be saved, you’ll likely need a root canal to save the tooth. If the tooth cannot be saved, we also have options that can save your smile. Dr. Kapers offers dental bridges and dental implants that naturally blend in with your smile!
