Here are some common treatments offered by Premium Healthcare Dental Center Miami for cracked teeth:
If you suspect a cracked tooth, contact one of our dental professionals immediately for an evaluation and diagnosis. Early intervention can help preserve the tooth and prevent further complications.
A cracked tooth can result from various factors, such as biting into hard objects, teeth grinding (bruxism), traumatic injuries, or large fillings weakening the tooth structure.
Common signs of a cracked tooth include sharp pain while biting or chewing, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, intermittent pain when releasing biting pressure, and difficulty locating the source of the discomfort.
Unfortunately, a cracked tooth will not heal on its own. Cracks tend to worsen over time, leading to more significant problems if left untreated.
The treatment for a cracked tooth depends on the extent of the damage. It may involve dental bonding, a dental crown, root canal therapy, or tooth extraction in severe cases.
While some accidents are unavoidable, you can reduce the risk of cracked teeth by wearing a mouthguard during sports activities, avoiding biting hard objects, and addressing teeth grinding with a nightguard.
A cracked tooth can be considered an emergency, especially if it causes severe pain or exposes the dental pulp. Seek immediate dental attention to prevent further damage or infection.
