Broken Teeth

It’s important to see a dentist as soon as possible. A broken tooth can worsen over time, and prompt professional treatment can help prevent complications.

Broken Teeth Treatment

Treatment options for broken teeth depend on the severity of the break and the location of the damage. They may include:

  • Dental Bonding: For minor chips, dental bonding can be used to reshape and repair the tooth using tooth-colored composite resin.
  • Dental Crown: If the damage is more extensive, a dental crown (cap) may be placed over the broken tooth to provide strength, protection, and a natural appearance.
  • Root Canal: If the break is deep and has exposed the nerve or pulp of the tooth, a root canal may be necessary to remove the damaged tissue and save the tooth.
  • Extraction: In severe cases where the tooth is extensively damaged and cannot be repaired, extraction might be necessary. Your dentist can discuss replacement options, such as dental implants, bridges, or dentures.

Remember, it’s important to consult a dentist for proper diagnosis and treatment recommendations based on your specific situation. Dental professionals are trained to handle various dental emergencies and can provide the best guidance for your broken tooth.
