Broken Teeth in Gordon

Repair Your Broken/Chipped Tooth Before It Gets Severe

A cracked, chipped or broken tooth can cause serious problems beyond affecting the look of your smile.
The damage is not always immediately visible, cracks can reach the inner layers of your tooth and cause infections that require complex procedures and sometimes, extractions. Following a dental injury, a professional consultation with our dentists in Gordon will help identify the extent of the damage and treat it effectively to prevent it from becoming severe.

Broken or Cracked Tooth: Treatments

The type of procedure required to treat a broken/cracked tooth depends on the severity and location of the damage. Some common treatments include:
  • Veneers – to restore the shape of your tooth and improve its appearance.
  • Crowns – to cover, protect and restore the shape of your tooth.
  • Root canal – to repair damage or infection that has reached the inner layer of your tooth (dental pulp) via the cracks or injury.
  • Dental implant – to replace a lost tooth.
Atria Dental® provides a comprehensive range of dental care to treat broken, chipped, or cracked teeth including restorative dentistry, endodontic treatments and cosmetic dentistry.

Frequently Asked Questions

Even if you do not experience a significant level of pain or discomfort at first, a damaged tooth can lead to dental decay, infection and tooth loss if left untreated. If you experience any kind of dental injury and have a broken, chipped or cracked tooth, it is vital that you see a dentist and rule out these problems before they worsen.

 

Sometimes, if the crack or chip isn’t in a visible location like your front teeth (incisors), you may not be aware that is the cause of your toothache or discomfort. If you feel a sharp pain when you bite down, find yourself avoiding certain foods or chewing on the opposite side of your mouth, a professional consultation is necessary.

It is important that you see a dentist early if you have a broken/cracked tooth, however, it is only an emergency if you are in severe pain or the damage has left sharp fragments causing trauma inside your mouth. If you are unsure about the severity of your situation, contact our friendly team at Atria Dental® and we will be able to help you.
