CRACKED TOOTH REPAIR
Whether caused from trauma or through jaw pressure, a cracked tooth is a major dental concern. Not only can these damaged teeth be painful, they are also susceptible to decay and bacterial infection. Cracks and crevices on a tooth can become impossible to keep clean and can compromise the interior of the tooth. A cracked tooth should be considered an urgent dental problem, requiring repair to protect the health of the tooth.
At Meridian Campus Family Dental, we offer general dental care for cracked teeth that are causing pain or may be structurally unsound. In some cases, we can usually get you or your family member in the same day for treatment. Dr. Carpenter will examine the tooth and determine the best option for repairing it. Small cracks can often be fixed through bonding, where more severe damage may require a dental crown or other treatment.
REPAIRS TO DAMAGED TEETH
Once a tooth has been damaged, it needs professional care to ensure that it will not cause more dental issues. Broken teeth can become infected and lead to serious health problems; they also can become too damaged to save, leading to extraction. At Meridian Campus Family Dental, we never want you to be in pain or risk your health due to a damaged tooth. Call us as soon as you know there is a problem. We will get you in to see Dr. Carpenter to begin repairing your tooth using the latest dental technology.
You should never let a cracked or damaged tooth endanger your oral health. We accept most insurances at Meridian Campus Family Dental and can often offer you a same day dental appointment for emergencies. We also offer convenient payment and financing options for any repairs not covered by insurance.
