Chipped Tooth Repair
A chipped tooth is often an awkward dental injury. Not always painful, but a chipped front tooth can cause you to feel embarrassed about your smile. As a part of our general dentistry treatment services, Bear Valley Dental Care provides quick and effective chipped tooth repair for patients in Boyertown, Gilbertsville, Pottstown, Fleetwood, Pennsburg and the surrounding communities. Teeth are living features inside the mouth, and it is imperative that you receive prompt treatment for a chipped tooth. If you damage your teeth by chipping your enamel, call our caring dental practice to schedule an appointment for quick repair.
The teeth are more resilient that many people give them credit for, yet it does require promptness for dental repair to be effective. Once external damage has been done, the teeth become much more vulnerable to significant damage, including bacterial infection and decay. If you have chipped your tooth, try as hard as possible to find the portion of your tooth that has been chipped off. Keep this portion moist in a small amount of milk, and bring it with you to our office.
Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth
Injury and trauma are often the main causes of cracked or broken teeth. It is essential that you bring any damage to your teeth to our dentist’s attention as soon as possible. This is important in helping to save your tooth or teeth. Before any repair can begin, it is necessary to do a thorough exam to determine the extent of the damage to your mouth. Small cracks in the teeth can often be repaired with bonding agents or tooth-colored fillings. However, large cracks or broken teeth typically require more extensive repair.
Most cracked or broken teeth are painful, and you will know that something is awry in your mouth. Do not ignore these symptoms! Early treatment and intervention are the best methods for saving your tooth. By ignoring pain inside your mouth, you could be causing worse issues to develop that will require more widespread treatment.
If you suspect that you have a damaged tooth or you chipped a tooth, contact Bear Valley Dental Care as quickly as possible to schedule an appointment.
