When it comes to our smiles, a damaged tooth can be a big problem. Not only can chips, cracked and even fractures have an impact on the appearance of your smile, they can also compromise the integrity, health and function of the affected tooth as well. Left untreated, even minor tooth damage can result in decay, damage and infection of the tooth pulp and root, ultimately leading to more costly and invasive treatment options down the road.
In the event that you or a loved one experiences damage to a tooth such as chipping, cracking, breaking or even fracturing, we recommend immediately trying to find any of the pieces and placing them in milk or water to stay moist. Next, contact our emergency endodontist in Spanish Fork, UT. We would be happy to evaluate your smile to determine the best treatment option available Depending upon the severity of damage, a root canal or even tooth extraction may be required.
Damaged teeth can be just as important for children as well, even if a baby tooth has been damaged. In many traumatic dental injuries, damage can occur to more areas that just the affected tooth. Having your child’s smile and overall oral health evaluated after an oral injury is always recommended to ensure there will be no future complications as a result of the accident.
