This patient was seen on an emergency visit because of a fall and fracturing of the front two teeth.  This can be a difficult scenario because not only is there trauma to the teeth but also to other parts of the face.  Our first objective is to get the patient comfortable as quickly as possible. When teeth break in this way, the nerve can be very sensitive and even breathing in air through the mouth can be painful. With this patient we were able to relieve the sensitivity and repair the fracture in a timely fashion. The patient and parents left happy!
