When you have a cracked tooth, it can be tempting to ignore it and keep going about your daily routine. This is especially true if the crack is not painful, or if you are afraid of visiting the dentist. However, living with a cracked tooth can be very dangerous and should not be something that you try to do under any circumstances.
Many Cracks Can Be Repaired
For starters, you would surely rather have a tooth repaired as opposed to having it removed. Repairing a cracked tooth is usually much simpler-and much less costly-than extracting the tooth and finding an adequate replacement.
For this reason, you should have us look at any cracked tooth immediately so we can determine what steps are necessary to save it (if possible). If you wait, the crack can become worse, and you may end up having to go through a tooth extraction that could have been avoided with prompt treatment.
Cracked Teeth Can Affect The Rest Of Your Body
If you have a crack that exposes the soft inner tissue (the pulp of the tooth) to germs, it can eventually become infected. This infection, in turn, can spread through the rest of your body by means of the blood vessels that connect the tooth to everything else. You can end up allowing your cracked tooth to be a source of constant infection and bacteria.
If you have cracked a tooth, we really need to see it. It may not be a pleasant prospect to you, but it's better to take care of it now before it gets worse. It may very well be possible to save the tooth if we act quickly. So contact us today and let us take a look at your tooth.
