How can teeth be broken?
There are many causes for tooth fractures. On occasion, there may be some hard food you chew by accident. In other cases, direct trauma can result in fractures. Grinding your teeth can wear down tooth tissues and weaken them, eventually breaking them.
Symptoms of a broken tooth
Tooth fractures can affect the enamel, dentin, cementum, and the pulp. The most obvious sign of a broken tooth is damage that is visible to the naked eye. Fracture lines and discoloration are most common in patients who have suffered acute trauma. Sensitivity to hot, cold, and sweets are also common in broken teeth and may progress into painful chewing.
What is the prognosis?
Depending on how badly the tooth is broken, the long-term effects may vary. If fractures affect the enamel only, disturbances are of aesthetic and sometimes functional nature. When fractures are deeper, they can impact the tooth’s vitality and may lead to serious infections and tooth loss.
Broken teeth can bring a lot of stress to patients. This is why it is very important to contact your dentist and plan a dental broken tooth repair as soon as you can. The risk of serious complications like tooth loss is high and timely treatment is essential.
Several options are available for repair and will depend on the breakage. They include bonding, veneers, root canals and crowns. After a thorough examination, your dentist can work with you to choose the best option for your situation.
