Whether through trauma or gradual decay, broken teeth can affect people of all ages. If your teeth have sustained damage, you don’t want to delay in having them checked. Alleviate any discomfort and uncertainty by contacting Medora Dental Care in Abbotsford for broken tooth treatment right away. Depending on the extent of the damage and its location, we can repair problematic fractures and chips, using a filling, crown, or a bridge.
How Are Cracks Treated?
Some cracks can only be seen with an X-ray machine, while others are visible to the naked eye. If the crack affects the root of the tooth, a root canal is the recommended treatment option. The pulp, vessels and nerves will be removed and the space will be filled with gutta-percha. A filling or crown will be applied on top to restore functionality.
If the crack is too extensive for the tooth to be saved, a tooth extraction is usually performed. To restore functionality and aesthetics, bridges, dentures or dental implants may be recommended.
