No one wants to break a tooth! While it can be pretty upsetting, it’s usually fairly simple for us to fix a broken tooth with a dental crown or other restoration.
If you call 1st in Smiles at 972-905-9266 and explain the problem, we’ll offer you an appointment as soon as we can – on the same day, if possible. It’s important not to wait too long to repair the damage. A break provides a way for bacteria to get inside your tooth, where it can cause a painful and damaging infection.
Calling us ASAP is the first of our five suggestions on how to to handle a broken tooth. Check out our infographic for the other four. We can also help you prevent breaks from occurring. For example, Dr. Barfield can fit you for a custom mouthguard to protect your mouth from athletic injuries.
