Broke, worn or chipped teeth is a very serious condition. A broken tooth can be a sign of a much larger dental condition, such as an infection or decay. Ignoring a broken tooth can lead to root canals or even tooth loss. Broken, worn or chipped teeth can be an indication of an underlying problem with the TMJ or occlusion (bite). The dental caregivers at Mandarin Dental Professionals will assess your condition to identify the reason why teeth are worn or broken and develop a custom-made treatment plan to deliver you with long lasting, great looking, and comfortable results.
For a single chipped or broken tooth caused by an injury or accident, Mandarin Dental Professionals offers a variety of treatment options such as veneers, tooth bonding, or dental crowns. Our objective is to repair your broken or chipped tooth as quickly as possible with the least amount of invasive dentistry and down time.
Ideally, all of your teeth should make contact at the same time and with the same force. In patients with occlusal disorder or TMJ dysfunction, there is an incorrect alignment of the teeth or jaw joints. When teeth make contact out of alignment with others, it can cause the teeth to wear, break or chip.
Depending on your condition, Mandarin Dental Professionals may recommend one or several treatments to restore stability and correct the situation. Those treatments may be to balance the bite by using orthodontics, reshaping the teeth, crowns, extractions or additional treatments. Fixing the underlying cause of the problem will ensure that treatment results will last and be comfortable.
