Dentist 's  Response
The trauma has resulted in an injury to the orthodontic braces and to your teeth. You have to get an x ray of the tooth to identify if there is any fracture of the root of the tooth. A splinting of the tooth might be required depending on the mobility of the tooth. Sensivity could be due to the exposure of the dentin of the tooth due to trauma. Consult your dentist immediatley for care.

Thanks for asking the query,

Due to trauma to the tooth it had become loose in the oral cavity.
I would suggest you to visit the concerned Dentist and take an x-ray of the tooth.
Depending upon radiological and clinical examination see if the tooth can be root canal treated.
Take a complete course of antibiotics and analgesics.
Use antiseptic mouthwash rinses twice daily.
Maintain a good oral hygiene.

Hope this helps out.

Thanks for writing in.
The tooth sensitivity in ceramic braces wearing teeth is due to dentinal sensitivity caused due to exposure of dentin due to wearing of enamel during orthodontic tooth movements.
Usually during orthodontic treatment,teeth becomes loose due to orthodontic forces applied on teeth.
Such mobility usually stops by its own .
No need to be panic.
Please do visit your orthodontist and get further fixing of braces done.
I wish you good health.

Hello there ,

Thanks for writing your query,

After reading your history i suspect your upper front teeth are traumatized due to heavy impact.

Impact injury leads to pulpal damage of the tooth known as pulpitis.

We can save such traumatised tooth by root canal procedure, provided the periodontal status of the tooth is good. That is, if the tooth is not mobile.

Root canal procedure disinfects the tooth by removing the infected nerve tissue and the root canals are cleaned,shaped and filled with permanent restorative material.

Once the treatment is completed , the teeth can be restored with a prosthetic crown coverage.

you need to get an x ray done the affected area to confirm the presence of infection, approach a dentist for the treatment.

i hope this helps ,

take care.

Hope so you are doing well now,after the accident.

Sometimes during an accident , because of the impact - the teeth might have become loose,and get injured.

Its better to visit the dentist and get an x-ray done .

Depending on the clinical condition and X-ray if root canal treatment is required it should be done.

Since you are undergoing orthodontic treatment sometimes due to the tooth movements also the teeth might appear to have been slightly loosen , So if the bracket is replaced again it might solve your problem without undergoing root canal treatment.

Hope so this will help you,

Thank you.
