Managing Trauma

Managing Trauma

We’d like to disclose a case of a patient who consulted us for face trauma treatment at Richardsons dental and craniofacial hospital. A patient named Vivek, aged 33 walked into RDCH with severely infected and swollen upper lip; pus was oozing from his lip and he was dying out of pain. We took a scan immediately and were shocked to see some foreign particles stuck inside his lips. On further enquiry, we learnt that the patient has injured his lips and broken his two front-teeth in a road accident, a few days ago. Bywalkers rushed him to a nearby hospital for emergency care.

After two days he experienced severe pain and discharge, hence they approached Richardsons dental and craniofacial Hospital. The patient was shifted to the operation theatre and Dr. Sunil Richardson did an incision and drainage face trauma treatment. During the surgery, we were shocked to rule out broken tooth fragments from his lips. We removed all the fragments, debrided the region completely and placed sutures. It was indeed due to the negligence at the hospital where he took the emergency care.

We restored his broken front teeth using composite resin and it really resembled his natural teeth. Composite resin has various shades to simulate your natural tooth color.

Another most common and esthetic method of anterior teeth management is using light cure composite resin – a synthetic resin material used for restorative and adhesive purposes. It is polymerized using dental led curing light (narrow spectrum blue light.)
