Broken Teeth Treatment
If you need broken teeth treatment, it is so important that you come to see an experienced endodontist to perform that treatment for you. Here is how we handled cracked and fractured teeth.
Broken Teeth Treatment | Cracks and Fractures
All of the stress in today’s life has many of us clenching and grinding our teeth. The unfortunate aspect of that habit is to cause your teeth – especially your back molars – to fracture. Fractures in teeth are really the worst issue we currently deal with. Tiny cracks cause the nerves to become sensitive and make your teeth flex. Then, as those cracks widen, they allow bacteria to get into your tooth, which can cause a tooth to become infected.
Broken Teeth Treatment | How We Fix It
When you come to our office with a cracked tooth, we first examine the tooth under a microscope to determine the extent and exact location of the crack. If the crack is a minor one, and is superficial, we can perform all of our preparatory treatments immediately. After that, your dentist will put a crown on the tooth and you can expect it to have a long life. If we find that the crack is extensive and jeopardizes a successful prognosis, we might meet with you and your dentist to discuss the possibility of extracting the tooth and devising a replacement option.
Broken Teeth Treatment | Pulling Your Tooth or Having a Root Canal Done
When you come in to see us because of an issue with your tooth, our main concern is discovering the best options for you. Is there a healthy state we can establish for your tooth that will enable you to enjoy a good quality of life and retain your tooth, or would it be more beneficial for you to take the tooth out and install a replacement?
Your health and satisfaction are our top priority. We are looking forward to helping you. Please contact our Buffalo Dental Office to schedule your broken teeth treatment appointment.
