Chipped Tooth Repair
Mendota Springs Dentistry is the practice to trust when you need cracked tooth repair. Any type of damage to a tooth should never be ignored because even a small crack in the tooth enamel can lead to serious issues of progressive decay. A cracked tooth typically presents itself with pain from biting down. Each time you bite down on a cracked tooth, the crack will open under the pressure. A sharp pain is typically felt each time the crack opens and closes. Some cracks are “surface” cracks that do not cause extreme pain, but they still need dental treatment in order to prevent further damage. However, any crack in a tooth that does cause pain needs to be treated immediately.
Each tooth is made up of three layers: the enamel, the dentin, and the pulp. When a cracked tooth reaches the pulp of a tooth, extreme pain and sensitivity will be felt – and it will continue until treatment is performed. Under no circumstance should you expect a cracked tooth to heal on its own. Putting off treatment only allows your pain to continue and more serious issues to arise. At Mendota Springs Dentistry, we offer exceptional cracked tooth repair, and we are happy to file your claim with your insurance. For those who do not have dental insurance or whose insurance does not cover the cost of cracked tooth repair, we happily offer flexible financing through our office.
