Times Where Dental Chips Become Massive Problems

Posted on 11/9/2020 by Tropic Dental
Chipped teeth by themselves are big problems. However, the longer a chipped tooth is untreated, the more likely that the chipped tooth will cause additional problems for the patient. This is primarily because a chipped tooth exposes its root pulp, rendering it vulnerable to sensitivity and infection. Our patients should treat chipped teeth as dental emergencies and contact our office as soon as possible. Problems and Complications with Chipped Teeth The longer a chipped tooth is untreated, the more likely the patient is to encounter tooth sensitivity. Chipped teeth that are jagged or pointed can scratch and tear the insides of the mouth, causing bleeding and additional damage. If the chipped tooth has damaged enamel or exposed dentin, the tooth is at increased risk of tooth decay due to the exposed tooth pulp. If the chipped tooth becomes a cracked tooth, then the tooth may require a root canal or an extraction. In extreme cases, an infected chipped tooth can cause the patient to have a fever. Treating a Chipped Tooth Patients who have had part or all of a chipped tooth fall off might be able to get the tooth put back in place if they can keep the tooth calcified with milk and see us for an emergency appointment. Bonding uses resin to reshape a chipped tooth, and its effects can last up to ten years. A porcelain veneer is a type of tooth cap that fits over a damaged or discolored tooth and can last up to thirty years. A dental onlay is like a custom-made cap for a damaged tooth, covering and protecting the tooth for up to twenty years. Call our office immediately if you suspect that you have a chipped tooth. This may qualify as a dental emergency, and our staff would expedite your case to schedule an immediate appointment....
