Common Reasons for Dental Restoration:
People often think of a chipped tooth as a lost cause. They may think that the only way to fix it is by replacing the tooth entirely. This is not the case. dental restoration specialist at Greater Endodontics are seasoned professionals that can handle any chipped tooth, which can be usually repaired with a simple filling and cap. However, a fracture often extends to the roots, exposing the pulp of the tooth. A root canal treatment is usually required to save and restore function to the tooth.
A tooth becomes dislodged from being pushed sideways out of or into its socket. In order to save the tooth, endodontic treatment is necessary to re-position and stabilize the tooth. If the pulp of the tooth has been damaged a root canal must be started in addition to medication followed by a permanent root canal filling or crown placed at a later date.
If a tooth is completely knocked out of your mouth it is essential to contact a dental restoration specialist immediately. Your tooth can be saved, so long as you follow critical steps and receive treatment. If your tooth has been knocked out and you can save it, pick it up by the biting surface and make sure that you do not touch the roots. Make sure to gently rinse it. If possible, place the tooth back into the socket or in a glass of milk in order to prevent it from drying out. Depending on the length of time the tooth was out and how it was stored, an endodontist may be able to replace the tooth and stabilize it with a splint. After the splint has been in place for a period of time a root canal is needed.
A horizontal root fracture is less common and the healing success largely depends on where the fracture is located. The closer a fracture is to the tip of the root, the greater the chance of success is. Stabilization and medication may be required to begin the healing process followed by the eventual root canal to repair damaged pulp.
