From restoration to replacement, The Lodge Dental Suite can provide the solution.
A broken tooth can happen to anyone, at any time. Whilst a healthy tooth is less likely to break under normal circumstances, a heavy fall or blow to the face can cause even the healthiest of teeth to break off.
If this happens to you in this manner, you should first of all make sure that there are no associated head injuries by getting yourself checked at the A&E, and then make an emergency dental appointment at our Cheshunt dental practice.
Each broken tooth will vary in the way it is broken, and also the extent. These factors, along with patient preference will help us to determine the best option for treatment of the broken tooth.
Dental bonding is an option where a breakage is very small. It is the most straightforward procedure for this purpose but is not the strongest. Any sizeable breakage where pressure will be put on a tooth may not be suitable for this procedure.
Depending on the area and type of break, it may be possible to restore the tooth using a dental filling. This can either be a standard amalgam one or a tooth coloured filling which will provide a more aesthetic appearance. An additional bonus of white teeth fillings is that, generally, less of the natural tooth has to be removed in order to place it.
