A Full Evaluation
Following the fracture of a tooth, it is important to receive a full evaluation from one of our doctors. Although it may appear that just a single tooth was affected, we can closely examine the extent of the damage to determine if you have a fractured cusp, a crack that extends down below the gum line, a split tooth, or a vertical root fracture. If your tooth was damaged in something like a car accident, we will also closely examine your jaw to ensure that your jaw alignment was not affected.
What are My Options?
Depending on the severity of the broken tooth or teeth, we can offer various treatments, including:
When a patient suffers a serious fracture to their teeth, there is a chance that the entire tooth may need to be extracted. In this case, we recommend dental implants, as they offer the most secure, durable solution available. During a minor surgery, the doctor will replace your dental root with a small titanium implant that fuses directly to the jaw, then design a beautiful crown that will attach directly to the top of it. We offer various types of implants, including traditional, Implants-in-a-Day, mini implants, and zirconia implants.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
If one or two teeth have broken, another option may be a dental bridge. If the surrounding teeth have not sustained any damage, we can extract the damaged teeth and then use the healthy ones as an anchor for securing the prosthesis. By literally bridging the gap using a custom-made bridge and dental crowns, patients can restore the aesthetics of their smile, and regain full function of their bite.
If you have suffered trauma to the anterior teeth, but the doctor has determined that your teeth are still secure and did not become loose during the injury, porcelain veneers can provide an excellent option for you. Veneers, made of thin shells of porcelain crafted to match the color and shape of your smile, are attached directly to the surface of the damaged tooth. Veneers are very popular because they are minimally invasive and still provide beautiful, natural-looking results.
