Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know!
What should I do if I have a cracked or broken tooth?
If you have a cracked or broken tooth, it's essential to seek dental care as soon as possible. Contact our clinic immediately to schedule an appointment for evaluation and treatment. In the meantime, rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling.
How do I know if my tooth is cracked or broken?
Symptoms of a cracked or broken tooth may include pain when chewing, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, swelling around the affected tooth, and visible damage such as a chip or fracture. If you experience any of these symptoms, it's crucial to see a dentist for an examination and appropriate treatment.
What treatment options are available for a cracked or broken tooth?
The appropriate treatment for a cracked or broken tooth depends on the severity of the damage. In some cases, a minor crack or chip may be repaired with dental bonding or a filling. For more extensive damage, a crown or dental veneer may be necessary to restore the tooth's strength and appearance. In severe cases where the tooth's structure is compromised, a root canal or extraction may be recommended.
Will I need to undergo dental surgery for a cracked or broken tooth?
Not all cracked or broken teeth require surgery. The treatment approach will depend on the extent of the damage and the underlying cause. Minor cracks or fractures may be addressed with non-surgical treatments such as fillings or bonding. However, if the tooth is severely fractured or infected, surgical intervention such as a root canal or extraction may be necessary.
Is it possible to save a cracked or broken tooth?
In many cases, it is possible to save a cracked or broken tooth with appropriate dental treatment. However, prompt intervention is crucial to prevent further damage or infection. If you suspect you have a cracked or broken tooth, contact our clinic immediately for evaluation and treatment options.
How can I prevent future cracks or breaks in my teeth?
To help prevent future cracks or breaks in your teeth, it's essential to practice good oral hygiene habits such as regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups. Additionally, avoid biting on hard objects such as ice, pens, or hard candies, and wear a mouthguard if you participate in activities that pose a risk of dental injury, such as sports.
