A tooth, or teeth can get cracked as a result of impact from sports, falls, or accidents. Treating a cracked tooth at once is important, as bacteria can enter the tooth leading to serious infection, and the need to extract the tooth. A cracked tooth does not heal naturally, as do your bones, but can be resolved with various dental techniques.
Crowns and Cracked Teeth
A crown can be placed over the cracked tooth. Some cases will require a root canal procedure. We urge you to visit us at Hillock Family Dentistry at once if you or your child has a cracked tooth.
