Chronic night grinding, and other bad oral habits can potentially chip one of your teeth. This can sometimes cause problems with increased sensitivity, and even invite a new cavity to form in the already distressed tooth. To prevent further complications, you should seek professional care at our dental office in Spring, Texas.
If the fractured tooth enamel doesn’t compromise the integrity of the tooth, our dentists, Dr. Ngocmai Nguyen and Dr. Khoa Nguyen, may be able to repair the tooth with a simple amalgam or composite resin dental filling. If the fracture is large but the interior of the tooth is healthy, they might recommend replacing the tooth enamel layer with a dental crown.
Some tooth fractures can be so severe that it damages the pulp or root of the tooth. This could be the case if you are experiencing a persistent ache, sharp pain, or extreme sensitivity in the tooth. The most effective treatment for a tooth in this condition might call for our dentists to perform a root canal. Once this has been completed, they can fit the tooth for a dental crown.
