Learn More About Treating Damaged Teeth
Cracked or fractured teeth are a very common problem we treat at Optima Dental surgery center. With the technology for dental work has advanced, people are able to retain their natural teeth longer. Over time, cracks or fractures may occur as a result of biting hard on an object, grinding, trauma, and even teeth clenching.
Whenever your tooth enamel is cracked, the pain can be unbearable for a moment. As long as you don’t put pressure on the cracked tooth enamel, for example, biting action there shouldn’t be discomfort. But as soon as you do the biting action it widens the crack exposing the pulp and inner workings of the tooth causing discomfort to occur. Once both parts of the cracks on the tooth are joined back together, the pain will surely subside. If left untreated it can cause irreversible damage to the pulp of the tooth and thus cause you to endure more pain. It can also let bacteria enter the crack reaching the bone and causing an infection not only in the bone and tooth but the soft tissue surrounding the tooth as well.
