Dento Alveolar Fractures

Dento Alveolar Fractures

Dento alveolar fractures refer to fractures of teeth and supporting bone that occur after trauma to the mouth following domestic violence, sports injuries and motor vehicle accidents. The teeth in the affected area are often displaced, broken or even lost. The teeth and bone can be repositioned and fixated with microplates and screws or splinting of the teeth. Fracture treatment might require the removal of broken teeth, root canal treatment or restorations. If dental trauma results in lost teeth, or teeth that need to be extracted, dental implants or a partial denture may be necessary.
