How To Deal With Partially Broken Front Teeth?
I want to ask, my front tooth is broken, but only a little because it’s in front of the front, it looks really, it’s broken for a long time and I don’t know if a broken tooth can be connected again so I ignore the fracture, and when I check the doctor, the patch can be patched , but I finally went to the nearest dentist from the house instead of dentist A, until there the dentist said that if I wanted to patch my teeth it would be miserly as a result, it would not be patched, because I thought that the path was only a little because it was completely drained ,, sad my ding ,, my question is only a little broken tooth does not have the process of filling should be thought to run out ????
Thank you for the question.
Thin front teeth are more easily broken than other teeth. The risk of breaking your teeth will be greater if the tooth structure is less dense, for example due to lack of calcium or a hole in the tooth. This broken front tooth, if it is very small and does not reach the root of the tooth, often does not cause pain and is also not a dangerous thing. But indeed, the broken front teeth can interfere with appearance and make the jaws difficult to close tightly.
In the medical realm, handling partially broken front teeth can be done in several ways, namely:
Reattach the tooth fracture (if the tooth is still vital) --- this is not possible in your case considering that the tooth fracture has occurred a long time ago and it is no longer possible to maintain the fracture of the tooth
Patching broken teeth; This dental filling can be done directly on the remaining teeth (if the condition of the broken tooth is good enough and allows the filling to stick firmly), or it can also be done firstly. The purpose of thinking of some of these teeth is to remove damaged tooth tissue, while creating a strong attachment to the tooth fillings. Of course, this thinking will not necessarily make your teeth run out, but only a part of it was filed on the outside or bottom.
Installing a dental blanket (crown); In this procedure, the doctor will first make a dental blanket using a special mold, then it will be placed on a broken tooth. This procedure can be done directly, or it can also be preceded by thinking of some teeth, as explained above.
The decision whether a broken tooth needs to be filed before being patched or fitted with a dental blanket would be better discussed directly with the dentist who is examining, because he is the one who best knows the condition of your teeth. However, a good doctor will only recommend a treatment if it is felt that the benefits generated far outweigh the risks. But if in doubt or confused, do not hesitate to ask for a second opinion by asking another dentist.
I hope this helps.
