It’s no fun to get a broken tooth. Whether you get a small crack or have a whole section of a tooth chip off, you are suddenly faced with an urgent dental situation you have to deal with. We have seen it all at West Meade Dental and can help you get quickly on the road to recovery.
A broken tooth can be caused by a lot of things, such as:
- A sudden blow to the face or fall to the ground
- Chewing something hard, like ice or candy
- Pressure from teeth grinding
- Cavities and tooth decay that have made the tooth weak and prone to fracturing
Depending on the severity and type of break, repairing the tooth might be as short as a single, quick dental visit or it may involve multiple appointments.
