What Are Cracked Teeth?
Whether it's caused by years of wear or an injury, a cracked tooth can be painful and lead to difficulty speaking or chewing. There are many different types of cracks that can form in the teeth, such as craze lines, fractured cusps, vertical root fractures, and split teeth. The type depends on the depth and location of the crack on the tooth, which also helps to identify the best way to treat the cracked tooth. It is important to get help at Savannah Smiles Dental as early as possible so your tooth is easier to save. A crack in your tooth cannot be healed, but Dr. Cassandra Garcia can repair the crack so that your tooth is still functional and the pain will dissipate. Call our Schertz, TX practice to schedule an appointment today if you have any cracked teeth.
How Are Cracked Teeth Treated?
Dr. Garcia will select the best treatment, depending on the extent and position of the crack. After a complete examination, she will explain your situation and create a customized treatment plan. The goal is to either prevent infection or remove any infected areas. For a fractured cusp, a filling or crown may fix the crack and prevent it from widening. If the crack reaches into the tooth's pulp, then root canal therapy could be performed. For a vertical root fracture or split tooth, endodontic surgery may be recommended. In some cases, the tooth may need to be extracted if it cannot be repaired to keep the infection from spreading to other teeth.
Savannah Smiles Dental Reviews
The transition from retiring Dr Durnford to new ownership for Savanah Smiles Dental has been seamless and flawless from my perspective. New staff are friendly and absolutely professional. I don't particularly enjoy dental visits, but Dr Garcia put me at ease right away. She has an affable personality and she exudes confidence and professionalism. Robert, the dental tech who conducted my cleaning, was exceptional and we had a lot in common. It was like running into an old friend you haven't seen for awhile. He took care of my teeth and did a wonderful job. This is the place to come for your dental needs!
