Trauma

Orthodontics is often needed after trauma to stabilize loose or avulsed teeth. An orthodontic wire is adapted to the teeth and bonded into place as a splint during the healing period. Broken off teeth can be restored by orthodontically extruding the tooth root far enough to be restored. After 20 years in the Air Force, two Mideast deployments and a teaching assignment at the AF Academy, Dr. Bentele is a resource to keep in mind for traumatic oral injuries.
