A cracked tooth is often a source of tooth sensitivity and pain. Luckily, there are several easy options to fix this problem if you contact an experienced dentist.
In this article, our team at Ken Caryl Dentistry has put together a guide to cracked teeth, what causes them, and how you can identify them. Let’s take a closer look.
Here are a few tell-tale signs of a cracked tooth:
There are several options to treat a cracked tooth. At Ken Caryl Dentistry, our dentists, Dr. Greg Herzberg, or Dr. Kayee Ho Herzberg can assess your oral health and recommend the best one.
Crowns are dental caps made of porcelain, ceramic, or metal that protect cracked teeth from further damage and infection. To place them, our dentists will file off part of your tooth enamel and put the caps over the damaged area.
A root canal is a procedure by which our dentists remove the damaged pulp from under your tooth to alleviate pain.
Bonding is the use of a composite resin material to fix the function and appearance of your tooth. It is the ideal procedure to restore your natural teeth when the damage is relatively minor.
A cracked tooth can cause discomfort and sleepless nights. If you experience any of the symptoms above, be sure to reach out to our dentists at Ken Caryl Dentistry in Littleton, Colorado to treat them as soon as possible.
