Did you know that your teeth are made from the strongest substance in your entire body? While your teeth can handle an impressive amount of strain and pressure from everyday function, they are not invincible. Accidents do happen, including those that cause chipped, cracked or broken teeth. It is important to see your dentist in a timely manner after a fractured tooth, even if it’s not painful or noticeable.

How do Teeth Break?

Teeth can become cracked, chipped or broken due to a variety of reasons, from biting down on something too hard to suffering mouth-trauma during sports or a bad fall. Other times, the tooth is weakened from disease or decay and is simply more vulnerable to breakage. Regardless of what caused your tooth damage, a dentist needs to restore it.

Ways to Repair a Fractured Tooth

Your cracked or broken tooth repair will be based on the severity and location of the damage. In most cases, a simple dental bonding procedure can seamlessly restore chipped or cracked tooth enamel. If the damage is severe, you may need a custom dental crown or root canal to restore the health and integrity of the tooth. You can trust Southern Oaks Family Dentistry to use the latest, most proven materials in modern dentistry so that your tooth repair looks natural and delivers long-lasting function.

Not all tooth damage is detectable to the naked eye. If you have sudden tooth sensitivity or pain when biting down, you may have a cracked tooth. In order to avoid worsening symptoms, further damage and more costly repairs, call our Baton Rouge office as soon as possible. We offer same day dentistry for dental concerns just like yours.
