Broken, Chipped or Cracked Teeth
What to do if your tooth breaks: Call our office immediately! It is very important to be seen right away after your tooth breaks to make sure the nerve is not involved and to make sure the tooth does not continue to break. Cracked teeth can occur from prior weakening of the tooth due to a cavity or filling, a previous root canal, grinding or clenching, biting down on something hard, trauma to the mouth, periodontal disease and sudden changes in temperature inside the mouth. Treating a cracked tooth depends on how much of the tooth is missing. A simple chip can be replaced with a composite ( white) filling, while a larger break would need a crown.
