If you have a broken or cracked tooth we can help. Teeth can become cracked for many different reasons, from sports injuries to simply crunching on ice. Whatever the reason for your injury you may need urgent dental care. It is very important to fix the issue early because untreated, damaged teeth can cause problems.
Broken tooth seems to be a pretty general term, however, that does not mean that the solutions are. Teeth can break in a lot of different ways and depending on what exactly happened will determine how your dentist treats the damage.
Solutions commonly prescribed to treat these types of damage are:
Failure to treat a damaged tooth or broken molar can cause permanent damage. In many instances, pain and bleeding may occur with tooth damage. There are a few things you can do to alleviate pain and bleeding before seeing an urgent care dentist.
In a lot of cases, tooth pain will cause patients to schedule a dental visit in case of injury. However, some breaks don’t reach the inner part of the tooth, the part that contains the nerve endings. Other dental injuries only hurt when chewing or releasing pressure from a bite.
The only way to determine the extent of dental injuries is to get the opinion of a trained dentist. Call Family Care Dental to schedule your consultation now.
