Cracked Tooth Repair in
San Antonio, Texas

Ideally, your teeth will be with you throughout your life. With the hardest substance in the human body as the foundation in their structure, your teeth were designed to last a lifetime. They are harder than bone. However, just like bones, under certain circumstances, a tooth can break or crack.

Cracked Tooth Repair in San Antonio, Texas

There are a variety of reasons this may happen. Personal habits you may have developed through the years, your genetic make-up, foods you eat all play a part in the health of your teeth. Sometimes trauma is the culprit in damage to a tooth. When a tooth becomes damaged, it is important to get it taken care of right away.

You can have a cracked tooth and not be aware of it until you feel the symptoms. This is often the case when a crack is present on the side of the tooth facing the tongue. It is not necessarily visible when you look in the mirror, but chances are you may feel discomfort. If you have sensitivity to hot or cold beverages or foods, you may have a problem.

Sometimes pressure can be an indicator as well. Biting down or releasing pressure on a damaged tooth may cause irritation. Pain can manifest in throbbing, or it can be sporadic; it can be sharp or dull. There are individuals that do not feel any indication at all until the nerve of the tooth becomes involved in signaling a serious problem. At Huebner Smiles Dentistry and Orthodontics, the first sign of any of these symptoms, it is important to make a general dentistry appointment and have the tooth examined.

Repairs to Damaged Teeth

Getting your tooth examined early gives you the best chance of saving it. In many cases, damaged teeth can be repaired. Repairs can be simple such as using a bonding material and essentially putting the tooth back together. More extensive repairs may include making a dental crown for the tooth. Unfortunately, not all damaged teeth are salvageable. If the crack extends below the gum line, the tooth will most likely need to be extracted.

When you have a tooth in need of repair, contact Huebner Smiles Dentistry and Orthodontics today. We will make a diagnosis and let you know the next steps to be taken.
