How Do Dentists Treat a Tooth Fracture?

If you’re wondering what to do about your fractured teeth, this helpful guide details the affordable dental care treatments that can fix a fracture with ease.

What Are Fractured Teeth?

A fractured tooth is the name for a tooth that’s been chipped, cracked, or broken. Regardless of the degree of damage, fractured teeth must be examined by a Dentist in Marietta at the first sign of mouth pain or problem to prevent them from getting worse. To understand fractured teeth, you need to know about the structure of the tooth.

  • The Crown – The top portion of the tooth that’s visible above the gumline.
  • Tooth Enamel – The protective hard, white top of the tooth
  • Dentin – A protective yellow layer underneath the tooth enamel, yet above the tooth’s pulp
  • Pulp – The tissue inside of the tooth surrounding its nerves, yet above its roots and bone

What Are the Best Types of Treatment?

The first step in getting treatment is seeing a Dentist in Marietta as soon as possible. Only then can your fracture be examined and the right treatment can be prescribed. During this examination, a series of oral tests will be performed. If the fractured tooth is difficult to locate with these tests, then dental x-rays will be needed to determine the source of the problem. The treatment for the fracture will depend on its severity and extent. Most affordable dental care specialists prescribe the following treatments for each form of fracture:

  • A Simple Sedative Dressing – For mild fractures, a Dentist in Marietta may decide to only use a sedative on the tooth to relieve any pain. The tooth would need to be re-examined in a few weeks to see if further treatment was needed, and then monitored over the next year.
  • Dental Bonding – Ideal for serious fractures that make a tooth loose and cause your gums to bleed, bonding can prevent the tooth from falling out. It involves bonding the loose tooth to the nearby teeth to keep it in place while the tooth’s tissue and bone heal.
  • A Root Canal – To treat a tooth fracture that’s highly likely to get infected, a root canal may be required before proceeding with another treatment.
  • Extracting the Tooth – This treatment is reserved for the most serous cases where the fracture extends through the entire tooth to its roots and prevents the tooth from being restored. As a result, the tooth will need to come out. After the tooth is extracted, the Dentist in Marietta will typically replace the tooth with a dental implant. Be aware that the area needs to be monitored closely over the next year and may require a future root canal or other type of treatment if the tooth’s pulp gets affected or infected.
