Fractured or Broken Tooth
(21595 Views)
With the years, our teeth become exposed to a variety of influences like dental surgery, clenching, grinding, or chewing hard things. All this can result in split teeth and dental fractures. Sometimes the tooth only has a crack or a split. Depending on the size of the crack the tooth can be preserved. The most common reasons for fractures are dental injuries as a result of an accident, fatigue fractures of pivot teeth, or teeth with big fillings. The worse case scenario is a Root Fracture. A Root fracture is a fracture of the dental root. Depending on the direction of the fracture, the tooth can be treated and preserved. Do you want to find out how to treat a fractured tooth?
