Cracked Filling or Tooth

When you can’t renovate rebuild!

  • Signs include wavering or inconsistent pain when eating or drinking, and treatment includes:
  • Repairing the tooth with a filling material
  • Placing a crown to protect the tooth from further damage
  • Endodontic (root canal) treatment if pulp is involved
  • Extracting the tooth if it is severely cracked and cannot be saved

Our teeth are built to last. Tooth enamel  is the hardest substance in the human body, even stronger than our bones. That tooth enamel is extremely durable but as we live longer, and expose our teeth to stresses like clenching, grinding or chewing on hard objects, we can put our smiles at risk.

If you think you have a cracked tooth, it’s important to see your dentist as soon as possible. Treatment depends on the type, location and severity of the crack, and the first step in deciding the best course of action is to take an X-ray. The best scenario is that a simple filling is all that is needed to repair the damaged area. However, if the crack is too deep or large, then root canal therapy, a ceramic crown or, worst case, an extraction might be necessary. We will recommend the best course of treatment for repairing the tooth and getting you out of pain the same day.

Did you know that keeping your mouth healthy can help prevent heart disease, aid in the control of diabetes and promote healthy pregnancies?

It’s true. Without routine dental care, plaque builds up on your teeth and gums and can lead to periodontal disease, making you more vulnerable to heart disease, clogged arteries and stroke. Gum disease and resulting infections can also cause blood sugar levels to rise, making the control of diabetes more difficult. Furthermore, studies have shown that pregnant women with gum disease may be seven times more likely to deliver prematurely

These facts say a mouthful, but the bottom line is that good oral care is imperative to overall wellness. There’s simply no question that a healthy mouth can lead to a long, healthy life and we are commited to helping you keep your smile for a lifetime.
