A cracked tooth can become a source of discomfort and embarrassment. In addition to being weaker due to trauma, the pieces of your tooth may shift when you apply bite pressure, creating worsening issues over time. We can arrange care to deal with these issues and the potential onset of an infection from your tooth’s inner structure being exposed.
Whether your cracked tooth is a problem you tried to ignore or one that you feel needs prompt care, we can help. For patients of record, we can book emergency dental services even outside of office hours to address this problem. When you come in for treatment, a review of the tooth and its current condition will indicate how care should proceed. A root canal treatment can address internal infection or trauma. To keep the structure safe, we can place a custom dental crown in just one appointment.
Remember that timing can be vital to successfully restoring your tooth and keeping your smile complete. The more time you spend not addressing a crack or other type of harm, the more likely it is that your tooth’s well-being will worsen to the point that it cannot be saved.
A cracked tooth is not a problem to take lightly. Fortunately, our practice is prepared to offer advanced care to address the structural harm and restore your tooth’s health.
