For many years, the only solution for a cracked tooth was extraction, but today’s dental technologies offer more options than ever. While extraction is still necessary for certain cracks that dip below the surface of the gumline, many teeth are easily salvaged and protected with a crown or a root canal/crown combination.
At Signature Smiles Dentistry & Orthodontics in Bastrop and Pflugerville, TX, we want to do whatever we can to help you retain your original tooth. When you schedule an appointment with us, our dental team will review your x-rays, provide options, and recommend the best course of action.
It can feel easier to ignore an issue than to make an appointment to get it taken care of. However, this can result in dental emergencies down the road. Let us ease your worry. We go above and beyond to ensure you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout your visit.
A cracked tooth is nothing to be ashamed of. As we age or experience stress, it’s common to clench or grind which naturally leads to fractures. But you don’t have to struggle with a jagged or painful tooth.
What To Expect When Treating Cracked Teeth
When we treat cracked teeth, our ultimate goals are to relieve your dental issue, save your tooth from further damage or extraction, prevent disease or infection, and ensure that your tooth looks great. If you notice a small crack growing, or a chip in your tooth, we can treat it with a crown, or even a tooth-colored filling. If you are experiencing further cracks or damage going down to the root, then a root canal, oral surgical procedure, or extraction might be necessary. Don’t ignore your dental problems. Solve them by calling Signature Smiles Dentistry & Orthodontics in Bastrop and Pflugerville, TX.
