No one wants a broken tooth. It affects your smile’s appearance and function – and if not repaired quickly, it can lead to a painful infection. Fortunately, depending on the extent of the damage, we can often repair the break with a dental crown.
Check out our infographic for our five tips on handling a broken tooth. Calling us at 334-600-1423 is the first step. We’ll offer you an appointment as soon as we can, often on the same day. It’s important to repair the break as soon as you can, because a break gives bacteria a way to get inside your tooth. The result is an often painful infection that, left untreated, will cause you to lose your tooth.
In addition to repairing breaks, our dentists can help prevent them from occurring. For example, they can fit you for a custom mouthguard to protect your teeth during athletic activities.
