Face the Facts about Fractured Teeth

Your teeth are surprisingly strong, but many things can cause them to chip, fracture, or break. How should you handle this dental damage? Follow these expert tips for treating chipped, fractured, or broken teeth.

Causes of Chipped, Broken, and Fractured Teeth

Many people suffer this type of dental damage at some time in their lives. But people experience it differently, based on the severity of one’s condition. Some people hardly feel a thing, while others have minor discomfort, major pain, or sudden sensitivity. The most common causes of chips, fractures, and breaks in teeth include:

  • Biting down very hard on a food or substance.
  • Old fillings that fail to support the tooth enamel
  • An accidental fall that injures the face
  • A strong hit in the face, mouth, or jaw
  • Severe decay from cavities that make the tooth very weak

Treatment for Types of Fractured Teeth

Fortunately, there are many ways for your family dentist to repair chipped, fractured, or broken teeth. The treatment you receive will depend on the type and severity of the damage. Treatment typically consists of the following:

  • Minor cracks – Minor surface cracks that affect only the tooth enamel and can be polished away by your family dentist
  • Deeper cracks – A deeper fracture that affects the entire tooth down to the nerve and eventually spreads. Cracked teeth typically call for a crown to keep the crack from worsening, but may require a root canal if the nerve is damaged.
  • Chips – These don’t always need treatment, but can be easily repaired by your family dentist, if desired.
  • Broken teeth – These types of breaks only affect the pointed chewing surfaces of teeth. Your family dentist will usually fix the break with bonding or a crown.
  • Major breaks – Since badly broken teeth usually expose the tooth’s nerve, they can bleed and be very painful. The usual treatment is a root canal.
  • Decay-induced breaks – Severe tooth decay can cause teeth to crumble or break. Your family dentist will need to review the degree of decay and will either repair the cavity or remove the tooth.
