Best Advice on Dealing with a Broken Tooth

On October 7th, 2011, posted in: Blog by 0 Comment

The pain and shock of a broken tooth can be traumatic. On top of that it is really an extreme nuisance. We may find ourselves taking our tongue and putting it on the broken tooth to feel the sharp edge and see if it’s still there. So what are the best steps to take when we break a tooth? How much will it cost to fix? Watch this video as we explore the answers to these questions.

There is no doubt that a broken tooth can cause a fair amount of stress. In addition to the possible pain, there’s the discomfort of the pointed edge that used to be round on the inside of our mouth. Some of us find it almost impossible to stop rubbing it with our tongue in the hopes that maybe it will return to normal.

We are more than likely going to need some kind of dental care if we break a tooth. This could be simple such as filing the rough edges, or more complex if the entire tooth needs rebuilt. The good news is that you have many options from crowns to implants to veneers and more. With the help of your dentist, you can decide what is right for you. Your dentist can also help you determine what will fit into your budget.

With as much stress as exists in the world today, there’s no reason not to fix our broken teeth as quickly as possible.
