What can you do from home?

A cracked, split, or broken tooth may be a scary and painful thing. If a portion of your tooth has broken off, keep it for the possibility of reattaching the tooth. If the tooth causes pain, take an anti-inflammatory pain reliever such as Ibuprofen to help relieve some of your pain and swelling.

Next, call Coddington Dental to set up your emergency appointment. It is important to visit a dentist immediately to avoid more breakage or an infection. We will review your options together to come up with the next best step for you.

What can your dentist do?

The severity of the crack or break in your tooth will determine the next steps. If the tooth is severely broken but a good portion of healthy tooth structure remains, your dentist will likely place a crown (cap) on the tooth to guard it against further damage. If the tooth is severely decayed and a cavity has reached the pulp of the tooth, root canal therapy may be performed. Once the root canal procedure is complete, and the infection has been cleared from your tooth, a crown will be placed on your tooth to help prevent it from breaking. If your broken tooth has severe trauma or deep decay and a root canal isn’t the best option, the tooth may need to be extracted and replaced with an implant. Dr. Brad Alderman and Dr. Jodi Day will be able to determine the best option for you.
