CHIPPED OR CRACKED TOOTH IN DELRAY BEACH

A chipped or broken tooth can be the start of more serious dental issues.

Although our tooth enamel is hard and strong, a fall, a hard bite, or any unexpected incident can break or chip off parts of your teeth.

From fillings, bondings, veneers or crowns, after you have your mouth thoroughly checked, Dr. Goetz will be able to set a plan and evaluate how your teeth can be repaired in the least invasive, durable way.

If you are a candidate, the complexity of your case may involve other specialists, including oral surgeons, periodontists or prosthodontists. Ocean Breeze Prosthodontics offers all of these services under one roof.

As a highly trained prosthodontist, Dr. Goetz uses improved techniques and modern technology to restore and reconstruct your mouth in the most comfortable and minimally invasive way possible. 

Why Should You Get Your Chipped or Broken Tooth Repaired

Reasons Why You Should Get Your Chipped or Broken Tooth Repaired

Help Surrounding Teeth Stay Strong

When you treat your chipped or broken tooth adequately,  not only the damaged tooth is improved, but also the surrounding teeth get stronger support and a  base to prevent further tooth loss.

Prevent Tooth Loss

By immediately repairing your chipped or cracked tooth, you’re taking a huge step in preventing tooth loss. 

Enhanced Smile

By repairing your chipped or cracked tooth,  you enhance  your smile and make your teeth look even.

Pain Relief

A chipped or broken tooth can cause pain if an infection develops in the damaged area. The sooner you fix your teeth, the less chances you will have of suffering pain due to your crack. 

Improved Functionality

Repairing a chipped or cracked tooth will mean that your bite, and other  functions (chewing, speaking, etc.) will improve.

Improved Oral Health

Even if you consider it to be a minor crack, fixing your chipped or broken tooth   is always the best choice.   Your whole oral health will be benefited by repairing cracks in your teeth.

Repairing a Chipped or Broken Tooth: Timing & Procedure

Depending on the kind of crack you have,  your procedures will vary in complexity, and time.

  • If your damaged teeth can be repaired with a simple filling, procedures may only take one office visit.
  • However, if you have a bigger crack or if your tooth was completely broken, you may need more complex treatments to restore your smile (probably a crown or a porcelain veneer).
      • For these kinds of treatments, you may require more than one office-visit and the treatment may take longer to repair your teeth.
  • For chips on your front teeth, many times bonding is the solution. This procedure is minimally invasive, almost painless, affordable and only takes one visit.

CHIPPED OR CRACKED TOOTH FAQ

How Do I Know If my Tooth is Chipped or Broken?

If you bite on hard foods, or fall down, and hurt your teeth, you will probably notice the crack immediately . However, it may happen that your root is affected, but you don´t notice it right away. To prevent further probelms, the best thing is to see the dentist asap and get your tooth repaired.

What Treatment Will I Get If My Tooth is Cracked or Chipped?

The treatment you get will depend a lot on your particular situation. If the root was affected, you will probably need more complex treatments such as root canals, implants and crowns. If the crack is minor, you can simply get a regular filling, an inlay or an onlay. It is important to see the dentist for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Will My Insurance Cover my Treatment?

Most dental insurance companies will typically cover simple procedures such as fillings, inlays or onlays. However, if you need a more complex procedure, you should always ask your insurance about coverage because benefits vary from one company (or dental plan) to another. If you have a PPO plan, and your insurance provides you with some kind of coverage, we will be happy to send everything to your company so you get reimbursed directly to your home after the treatment.

How Can I Relieve Pain Until I See the Dentist?

You can apply ice or cold pads on the affected area. Try to rinse your mouth if there´s bleeding and press the area with gauze to avoid more bleeding. If pain is very strong, you can take a pain reliever until you see your dentist and get the right treatment to repair your chipped or cracked tooth.

How Often Should I See my Dentist After my Chipped or Cracked Tooth is Repaired?

Your dentist will set the right treatment plan after checking your mouth. Then you will know if you have to see the doctor again or if the tooth has been repaired completely in one office visit. However, remember that to make sure your mouth keeps healthy, you need to visit your dentist at least twice a year.
