A broken tooth can be treated in many different ways depending on how severe it is. A small chip may be treated with dental bonding. However, a complete fracture may require a more extensive treatment. Dr Rasch may recommend a crown.

Why You Need a Broken Tooth Repair Immediately

Repairing a broken tooth is necessary, not only for aesthetic purposes, but also, more importantly, for oral health. The tooth may or may not have pain. But will need to be examined to ensure infection is not present.
Waiting too long may could result in:

  • Infection
  • Swelling
  • Damage of the nerve of the tooth
  • Fractured tooth socket
  • Permanent tooth loss
An Extraction May Be Necessary for Extreme Cases

Removing a broken tooth may be recommended in cases where the breakage occurs on a large portion of the tooth. And in cases where the brake is at the gum line. This will make the remaining tooth very challenging to repair.
