For the patients involved this is a major life event. A variety of problems can all cause traumatic injuries but the solutions are often similar. The common feature is that a sudden change occurs that needs urgent sometimes irreversible treatment that can profoundly alter your smile. The limited timescale, the costs, the emotional distress are all focussed on one event. We have the experience in dental implantology, cosmetic dentistry and endodontics to guide patients through a difficult time to maximise the end result and minimise the distress.
Case 1 (Childhood injury returns over many years)

Eventually root treatment is required and the post retained crowns are placed . Over time maybe one of the teeth fails due to the root splitting around the post crown.
