Cracked or Broken Tooth
Teeth that have been cracked or broken are an urgent dental issue that needs the treatment of a dentist as soon as possible. Contact us today at 219-800-2540 if you have a cracked or broken tooth in Munster, Indiana, or in the surrounding area. Our dentist and team at All Smiles Munster can get you the care you need to get your dental health back on track.
If a cracked or break in your teeth is left untreated, it creates a vulnerability in your tooth that can allow bacteria to get into the pulp of the tooth and cause an infection. Further neglect of this dental condition can lead to your tooth dying and the infection spreading to the rest of your body. It is imperative that you seek treatment as soon as possible to reduce the chance of further complications.
There is nothing you can do at home to treat a broken or cracked tooth, but if you call us, Dr. Bunmi Adekugbe can give you instructions that can help improve your chances of your treatment being effective. These instructions can also help to mitigate any discomfort you may experience if you are unable to come in immediately.
Please contact us immediately if you are in need of emergency dentistry for a broken or cracked tooth, but if your dental damage was caused by trauma to your head or neck, please first visit the emergency room or your general physician.
