||An injury to the tooth supporting structures resulting in increased mobility, but without displacement of the tooth. Bleeding from the gingival sulcus confirms the diagnosis
||Tender to touch or tapping.
|Pulp sensibility test
||Sensibility testing may be negative initially indicating transient pulpal damage. Monitor pulpal response until a definitive pulpal diagnosis can be made.
There will be a positive sensibility test result in about half the cases. The test is important in assessing future risk of healing complications. A lack of response at the initial test indicates an increased risk of later pulp necrosis.
||Usually no radiographic abnormalities.
||As a routine: Occlusal, periapical exposure and lateral view from the mesial or distal aspect of the tooth.
