Teeth don’t have to be knocked out to receive trauma. The tooth can be displaced further into the mouth, displaced forward, backward and many other different other ways. If this happens, contact your dentist and arrange to come in and have the trauma evaluated. A plan is then arranged how to correct the problem.
Teeth don’t even have to be displaced in order for trauma to occur. Trauma from occlusion occurs by simply biting down awkwardly on something with an abnormal force. The tiny ligaments that surround the tooth root become inflamed and tooth pain can result.
