Can You Save A Damaged Tooth?

Posted on 8/21/2023 by Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS
Can You Save A Damaged Tooth?A damaged tooth can result from teeth grinding, injury, accidents, or eating hard substances. It can also occur as a result of normal wear and tear as you age. In such an event, you can experience symptoms such as pain when chewing, tender gums, and sensitivity to hot and cold. Sometimes, you may not experience any pain or discomfort associated with the chips or cracks. However, a damaged tooth is susceptible to infection, which can spread to the gums, and you may end up losing the tooth. Luckily, some dental procedures can help to save a damaged tooth. Here they are:

Root Canal

Sometimes cracks and chips can make their way into the pulp chamber, leading to infection. At this stage, you will likely experience severe pain, tooth loosening, or tooth fallout. Do you know that preserving your natural teeth is the first step toward preventing oral issues? Due to this, a dentist may recommend a root canal to avoid tooth extraction. A root canal involves removing the infected pulp to alleviate pain and prevent further damage.

Dental Crown

A dental crown is a popular treatment for a damaged tooth. When you have a cracked or broken tooth, this doesn't indicate that you must undergo tooth extraction. A dental crown helps to improve the tooth's strength, aesthetics, and function. This prosthesis is customized to fit your mouth. This means that it will match the shape and color of your teeth. Nevertheless, before you get a dental crown, a dentist may suggest a root canal to remove the infection and improve the health of your mouth.

Teeth Bonding

Another way to repair cracks and chips or change your tooth's shape is through dental bonding. During this cosmetic dentistry procedure, a dentist applies a tooth-colored resin material to the damaged tooth to improve its appearance and prevent infection.
