Chipped or Fractured Teeth
A chipped or cracked tooth can be the result of an accident and can lead to tooth sensitivity. In the case of chipped teeth, your first course of action should always be a dental clinic visit. The visit is imperative to prevent the condition from worsening and relieving your discomfort. Our dental professionals assess the severity of the chip, for it ensures the requisite treatment that shall be prescribed. A minor injury can be treated with a simple filling and a major case of a chipped tooth needs a special dental crown or cap as a restorative measure.
Another common condition after an injury is the dislodgement of your tooth in a sideways angle, which then loosens its grip from its socket. For best results, our dentist needs to assess the extent of this dislodgement. If it’s a minor instance of a dislodged tooth, a minor repositioning effort on the part of our dentist should suffice. A root canal treatment might be necessary in an event where the injury is a major one.
