How teeth may be repaired
Breaks can range from very minor to fully noticeable.
Clearly, if a tooth is broken to the gum line, there is a major problem
that needs fixing. In such a situation, there is no remaining tooth
structure to repair and the goal will be to eliminate discomfort and
find a suitable option for tooth replacement.
Tooth replacement after the extraction of a broken tooth may involve the placement of a dental implant or the design of a customized dental bridge. Today, implants are one of the top treatments for missing teeth. This is because an implant replaces the missing root. When inserted into the jawbone, an implant will be surrounded by healthy bone tissue and fully stabilized for a lifetime of function and natural beauty. The fixed bridge is also quite stable, but relies on two healthy teeth for ongoing support, placing them under added stress.
When a tooth has sustained a mild to moderate break or fracture, repair may include the fabrication and placement of a custom dental crown. The purpose of a crown is to cover remaining, fragile tooth structure so that further damage does not occur. Treatment is completed over two visits and results can last more than ten years with good oral care.
