You Never Want to Leave a Cracked Tooth Untreated
Posted on 3/30/2020 by Metropolitan Dental Specialty Group
If you have a toothache, it might be a cracked tooth. Identifying a cracked tooth may seem difficult. However, there are a few ways you can try. If you have pain in an exact location, it could be a cracked tooth. General pain in your mouth doesn't indicate a cracked tooth. You may also be able to inspect your tooth for damage. Though, that may be hard is your tooth is cracked only slightly. A cracked tooth is painful, but leaving it alone may only make it worse. Cracked teeth are at risk for chipping or breaking. If you put too much pressure on a cracked tooth, chances are it may suffer further damage. Cracked teeth can also decay much quicker than non-cracked teeth. This is because a crack allows bacteria to eat away at the tooth from the inside. A cracked tooth will decay faster than a non-cracked tooth because it doesn't have enamel to protect it. Fortunately, there are methods to restore a cracked tooth to normal. How Is a Cracked Tooth Restored? We can restore cracked teeth in a multitude of ways. Not all cracked teeth are equal, so there's a different restoration method for each type of crack. The most common way to restore a cracked tooth is to apply dental bonding to the tooth to seal it. Dental bonding is a viscous solution that hardens after it's cured. Dental bonding consists of different material that come together to repair your tooth. After a tooth has been restored, you may notice a little pain from the procedure. However, that pain will go away within a week. If you think you have a cracked tooth, getting it checked is important. The longer you wait, the more risk you put your tooth in. The only way to know if your tooth is cracked is to come to our office so we can take a look. We'll take care of you....
