Cracked, Chipped and Missing Teeth can not only cause toothaches and pain but can become unsightly. There are many preventative measures which can be taken but they are not completely avoidable. We recommend: Not chewing on hard objects, Wearing a retainer or mouth guard if you grind your teeth while you sleep, Wear a mouthguard or protective mask when playing contact sports.
There are many different types of cracked teeth and it is important to seek treatment quickly.
Cracks can occur on the surface enamel of the tooth, vertically down the root of the tooth, they can completely split, or the can occur as a vertical root fracture. The treatment and outcome will depends on the type, location and extent of the crack.
While a cracked tooth will not heal, dental treatment will relieve the pain and allow the tooth to function as normal.
Cracked teeth can result in various toothache symptoms.
Most chipped teeth can be repaired either by bonding a filling or crown.
We strongly recommend booking an appointment as soon as possible to prevent the chip or crack from getting worse.
Chipped teeth account for the majority of dental injuries and can result in various toothache symptoms.
Decay and trauma are the most common causes of missing teeth. When a tooth is lost as a result of trauma often fragments of the root are left behind, resulting in pain and infections.
It is important to ensure that these fragments are treated. Teeth lost as a result of decay requires further examination in order to ensure your other teeth are not at risk. At Banyule Dental we offer many options for replacing missing teeth such as implants, crowns and bridges.
