A broken tooth, chipped tooth or otherwise damaged tooth can have more than just an aesthetic impact on your dental health. When teeth are broken or chipped, it affects the structural integrity of the whole tooth and can greatly increase the risk of developing tooth decay and cavities. Dr. Rafat and Dr. Izadi offer dental services for restoring damaged and broken teeth to support your long-term oral health.
Why Repair Broken Teeth?
When a tooth breaks, chips or cracks, it creates space for bacteria to enter the tooth structure and it is often difficult to effectively clean the area when brushing at home. Over time, a small problem can become a more complex threat to your overall oral health. Tooth decay, additional damage, gum disease, and even tooth loss are possible risks. If you have a broken or damaged tooth it is important to come in as soon as possible for a visit with us so that our team can evaluate the condition of the tooth and recommend appropriate treatment. Quickly repairing tooth damage can often mitigate risks and be accomplished with conservative treatment options.
