A broken tooth can be quite traumatic. First of all we have to deal with the pain and shock . We may even experience some trauma. Often it is an extreme nuisance and we find ourselves taking our tong and putting it on the broken tooth continuously to see if it is still there and to feel the jagged edge. So what should we do when we break a tooth? And how much is it going to cost? Watch this video as we explore the answers to these sensitive questions.
There is no doubt that a broken tooth can cause a fair amount of stress. In addition to the possible pain, there’s the discomfort and the “weird feeling” of having that sharp or pointed edge that used to be rounded on the inside of our mouth. Some of us find it almost impossible to stop rubbing with our tong in the hopes that maybe it will return to normal.
The truth is that when we have a broken tooth, we are likely going to require some treatment. This may be as simple as filing the rough edges, or as complex as needing to rebuild the tooth. The good news is that you have many options from crowns to implants to veneers and more. With the help of your dentist, you can decide what is right for you as well as what fits into your budget. With as much stress as exists in the world today, we need to fix our broken teeth as quickly as possible.
