Top Ways to Treat Fractured Teeth

A tooth fracture is the dental term for a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth. Luckily, there are several affordable dental care treatments today that can fix a fracture and save your smile.

A Closer Look at Fractured Teeth

When it comes to fractured teeth, a fracture can take make forms. A minor fracture would be a chip to the tooth’s outer enamel, while a serious fracture would be a deep break that affects the inner tissue of the entire tooth. Regardless of the degree of damage, you need to see a Dentist in Jacksonville as soon as you have any mouth pain, tooth sensitivity, or some other cause for concern. To understand fractured teeth, you need to know about the structure of the tooth.

  • Crown – The visible portion of the tooth
  • Enamel – The protective hard, white surface of the tooth
  • Dentin – A protective yellow layer that lies beneath the enamel, yet above the tooth’s inner tissue
  • Pulp – The tissue inside of the tooth surrounding its nerves, yet above its roots and bone

Types of Treatment

Before a Dentist in Jacksonville can determine the best way to treat a tooth fracture, a series of tests must be conducted in the mouth. If a fractured tooth is difficult to locate with these tests, then dental x-rays will be needed to detect and diagnose the problem. The treatment for the fracture will depend on its severity and extent. Most affordable dental care specialists prescribe the following treatments for each form of fracture:

  • A Sedative Dressing – For mild fractures, a Dentist in Jacksonville may decide to only use a sedative on the tooth to relieve any pain. The tooth would need to be re-examined in a few weeks to see if further treatment would be needed, and then monitored over the next year.
  • Dental Bonding – Ideal for serious fractures that make a tooth loose and cause your gums to bleed, because bonding can prevent the tooth from falling out. It involves bonding the loose tooth to the nearby teeth to keep it in place while the tooth’s tissue and bone naturally heal.
  • Root Canal – To treat a tooth fracture that’s highly likely to get infected, a root canal may be required before proceeding with another treatment.
  • Tooth Extraction – In the most severe cases where the fracture extends through the entire tooth to its roots, the tooth usually can’t be restored and will need to be removed. After the tooth is extracted, the Dentist in Jacksonville will typically replace it with a dental implant. Be aware that the area needs to be monitored closely over the next year and may require a future root canal or other type of treatment if the tooth’s pulp gets infected.
