Solutions for Broken Teeth
Though the enamel is a strong tissue, it can still be cracked or broken. People often break teeth when out playing in the field, when undue pressure is exerted on the tooth or in a traumatic fall or accident. Cavities also weaken the teeth thus increasing their chances of breaking when chewing. Some of the foods that weaken the teeth include candy, citrus fruits, dried fruit, soda, coffee, alcohol, potato chips and soft drinks.
Porcelain veneers Barrie are natural looking materials that are used to repair cracked, damaged and chipped teeth. They are normally used for the front teeth that are most visible. This is because porcelain veneers provide realistic results that are very attractive. Veneers are also a long term solution as they don’t require regular replacement. They last for over 3 decades if you care for them well.
Porcelain veneers can transform the appearance of your teeth in a big way. It is a cosmetic solution that is widely used for dental patients who want to improve their appearance, smile better and improve their self esteem. However, it is not recommended for people who grind their teeth as grinding wears them out.
Broken teeth can be painful or not depending on the extensiveness of the damage. For instance craze lines are very shallow and thus cause no pain. If the crack extends from the chewing surface towards the root, then the tooth begins to feel more painful. If a crack is left untreated, it could result to more serious problems. Over time broken teeth will wear more rapidly and get stains which make them unsightly.
The cracks and gaps can be filled with tooth colored resin material. It is an affordable solution for fixing broken teeth and the process can be completed with one visit to the dentist. It is a simple process that does not require anesthesia so long as it’s not touching the cavities. Composite bonding will last for up to ten years or more depending on individual care practices.
ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Extraction And Dental Implants
If there is no way to save a broken tooth, then the dentist will have to extract it and fill the space with a dental implant. Extraction of the tooth takes away the pain and prevents further decay and infections. Implants are fitted in the jawbone to replace the missing tooth root.
Crowns are the simplest and most common solutions for broken teeth. Dental crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, resin and ceramic materials. The solution is highly recommended for patients who experience pain when drinking or chewing food. The crown will cover the broken tooth to protect it and improve its appearance. With a crown, you reduce the chances of losing your broken tooth. It also restores the chewing ability.
If the crack is extensive, a root canal treatment should be done. The treatment will clean out the pulp. After the root canal, the tooth is covered with a crown to prevent further damage.
