We’ll Repair Albuquerque’s Broken Teeth
It can happen because of biting improperly, falling down or an accident that jarred your teeth together. A broken tooth is painful and can be very unsightly. While you may not consider it an emergency if the pain isn’t unmanageable, you should never leave a broken tooth to sit. Sandia Dental Care can provide you with the treatment needed to restore your ability to eat, talk and smile painlessly.
Are Broken Teeth a Dental Emergency?
Small bits of enamel may chip off of your teeth due to eating coarse substances or accidents that cause your teeth to click together. A minor chip can be repaired with a filling or bonding that ensures the enamel isn’t compromised any further.
Large breaks are a severe issue. Opening gaps in the tooth’s structure weakens the entire tooth as well as exposes the nerve and pulp to debris and bacteria. Depending on the size of the break and where it occurs on the tooth, you may need a crown placed over the tooth. This will involve grinding down any broken edges, examining surrounding teeth for damage and putting the tooth-shaped cap over the stump.
Teeth that break off at the root may require a root canal before an implant is used to replace the missing tooth. The size of the break determines the severity of the issue; if you’re in severe pain or a large chunk of tooth is missing, you need immediate care.
