Broken Teeth Treatments

Subconsciously grinding your teeth during your sleep? You probably don’t know you’re doing it, but the Kensington Dental Care team can determine this from a standard appointment. Teeth grinding is a common habit that can result in a broken tooth or several broken teeth if not picked up, particularly if you have been avoiding or missing dental appointments.

Going through a stressful or anxious period can also create similar damage and wear to your teeth through repetitive grinding actions, which will require broken tooth treatment. Dentists can easily spot the symptoms of a cracked tooth, even though you may not be able to see them. Kensington Dental Care offers excellent broken teeth treatments to restore your smile.

Going through a stressful or anxious period can lead to broken teeth through repetitive grinding actions over time. Let’s crunch those nasty habits!

Does Chewing Ice Crack Your Teeth?

Teeth may seem tough and sturdy since they’re covered in tooth enamel, but they aren’t designed to crunch very hard things such as ice. Chewing ice seems like a harmless thing to do, and many people do it. But it can easily lead to tiny cracks and chipped or broken teeth. Cracking ice with your teeth can cause damage that may require an emergency dental visit for broken tooth repair.

When is a Cracked Tooth an Urgent Dental Concern?

A chipped, fractured, or cracked tooth can be a dental emergency, especially when it’s broken below the gum line or if gum tissue covers it. Neglecting a cracked or broken tooth can result in decay and bacterial infections, leading to pain and discomfort. Emergency dental care may be necessary to address the issue and resolve infections.

If you’ve recently broken, chipped or cracked a tooth, or if you’ve been living with one for some time, come and see the dentists at Kensington Dental Care. We proudly offer a wide range of dental care, including broken tooth treatment options and broken tooth repair, or if you’ve had a broken tooth after root canal treatment, contact us here for an appointment.

Options to Fix a Broken Tooth

  • Dental sealants on the back molars and premolars may protect your teeth from becoming infected or cracked and act as a barrier against bacteria.

  • A simple filling may suffice for small chips or breaks as a cracked tooth treatment.

  • For larger cracks and fractures, something that completely covers the tooth may be the best option for broken teeth treatment.

  • We understand cosmetic concerns as well as functional ones. If the broken tooth is visible when you smile, a tooth-coloured bonded material can be used to match surrounding teeth.

  • Your dentist may suggest a root canal to treat your broken teeth. The infection is treated, and then the crown is positioned to prevent the spread of the infection and further cracking.

  • Sometimes, a tooth cannot be fixed, and removal may be required. See our Missing Teeth section for more information.
