Dental Treatment Options for Chipped Teeth

dca-blog_chipped-tooth-sad-illustration

The damage caused by a chipped tooth can be minor or serious. If you have a minor injury, it only involves your tooth’s enamel. Your tooth is still securely in place, and your gums are not bleeding. The tooth probably won’t even be overly sensitive to hot or cold. You may only notice the chipped area when the rough edges irritate your cheek or your tongue. In this type of injury, the risk to your tooth’s inner pulp is very small, and urgent treatment is not necessary. To relieve irritation caused by jagged or broken tooth surfaces, place a small amount of dental wax over problem areas to protect soft tissues until you can see an affordable dentist. Treatment for minor chips may involve a dental filling or placement of a crown or cap to protect the tooth’s pulp.

If the tooth pulp gets severely damaged, your dentist may perform a root canal, which involves removing the dying pulp and nerve tissue and replacing it with an inert substance to restore stability and prevent infection. If root canal treatment is not feasible, the tooth can be extracted. If you have suffered a chipped tooth or another type of dental emergency, don’t delay in getting treatment because of finances or fear of pain. Delays could cause increased pain, infection, or even tooth loss.

Some tooth fractures may involve your tooth’s dentin. These injuries often cause sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures. If you delay in getting treatment, the prolonged exposure to bacteria can cause the inner pulp of your tooth to die, and pulp death often leads to serious infections and abscesses. Try to see your dentist in Atlanta as soon as possible to avoid complications and save your tooth. Treatment for an injury involving dentin usually includes a sedative dressing, a dental filling, a crown or cap, and follow-up x-rays in several months to ensure that the pulp is still alive. An affordable dentist in can determine the most cost-effective way to manage tooth injuries of any type, and modern dental technology offers many ways to manage pain and anxiety.
