If your tooth is chipped, cracked or broken in any way it’s crucial to see a dentist as soon as possible, and should likely book an emergency appointment.
Teeth with cracks and fractures can allow tooth decay to penetrate the tooth, causing infections to the dental pulp, which might require root canal treatment.
You’re also in danger of the tooth cracking apart completely or requiring extraction, leading to a lost tooth as opposed to a fractured tooth.
Some cracks might be barely visible, but you’ll know you’ve got one if you experience discomfort when you eat, or sensitive to hot and cold temperatures.
Teeth can crack several different ways, whether it’s a straight crack, or multiple smaller cracks across the surface. Untreated, cracks can completely divide into two.
Minor cracks are typically easy to treat with composite bonding taking one visit at the dentist. Bonding is a fast, non-invasive way to repair teeth.
However, in the case of more severe fracture or cracks a dental crown might be recommended, which will also take one appointment.
