Tooth Trauma – Recovery from Broken and Chipped Teeth

dca-blog_chipped-tooth-sad-illustration

If you’re chewing a piece of ice and suddenly find a small piece that won’t melt, you may have broken or chipped your tooth. Biting into hard, crunchy foods or ice often results in minor tooth injuries. You can also get a broken or chipped tooth by trying to open a bottle with your teeth or accidentally biting your fork. If your teeth have some dental decay, they are even more likely to suffer damage from a mishap. Fortunately, all you need is an affordable dentist. There are several options for restoring your broken tooth.

Dental Care for Broken or Chipped Teeth



If you chip a tooth, it’s important to see an affordable dentist as soon as possible. A fractured or chipped tooth is vulnerable to further damage and infection, which could eventually result in tooth loss. Until you can see your dentist, rinse your mouth with salt water and cover any jagged areas of the chipped tooth with dental wax to prevent cheek and lip injuries. Eat soft foods, and try not to chew with the broken tooth.

Repairing a Chipped Tooth



Your dentist in Clearwater may be able to repair a chipped tooth with a simple dental filling. When a front tooth is damaged, the method of repair is typically bonding, a procedure where a tooth-colored resin is applied that blends in with the natural color of the tooth. A cap or crown may be the best solution for back teeth with extensive decay. Crowns are usually made from gold, porcelain resin, ceramic, or blended materials. Veneers are custom-made, thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain applied to a natural tooth’s surface; they completely cover the surface of the tooth. 
If your tooth is damaged enough to expose the pulp, your dentist or endodontist may perform a root canal. This involves removing the tooth’s pulp and nerve and then cleaning the empty canal and sealing it.
