or Broken Tooth
you have a broken or chipped tooth
that is not the result of a recent
trauma, Your dentist can evaluate
the tooth for possible treatment.
It is still important to have the
tooth evaluated right away, because
in some situations a minor procedure
now can save you from a more significant
procedure in the near future!
very small chip may be corrected
by enamel shaping. If the chip is
a little larger, the best options
may be bonding or a veneer. If the
chip is on a molar, an onlay may
be appropriate. Large chips and
fractured teeth generally require
a crown. If the fracture involves
the nerve, Root Canal Therapy may
be necessary before the tooth is
crowned. It is important to have
a broken tooth crowned before it
becomes infected or abscessed!
In extreme cases, a broken tooth
cannot be saved. In this case, an
extraction is needed. The missing
tooth can be replaced with a bridge
or an implant.
Each case is unique. Only your dentist
can properly diagnose the best course
of treatment for your tooth.
