Whether you have a cracked, fractured, broken, or split tooth, having it checked by our dentists not only will prevent your tooth from being permanently damaged, but also prohibit serious dental problems associated with a chipped teeth or voids and gaps in the whole structure.

Looking after your teeth's health is important as it represents how well you care for your overall health and a healthy set of teeth always gives you the confidence when facing other people. Some symptoms that indicate your tooth is broken and need attention includes:

Toothaches that Won't Go Away

A persistent toothache may be an indication of an underlying problem. If your tooth does not have a hole in it, the root may be filled with abscess and the inflammation causes the pain you are experiencing.

If this happens, it is better to have it checked by our dentists as they can provide you with the needed solution, whether it needs to be extracted or have the cavity filled. Although prevention is better than cure, if the problem already exists, your toothache will not go away unless you have it checked by the dentist.

An Unfamiliar Feeling When Your Tongue Brushes through your Teeth

Your tongue knows your whole mouth structure more than you know it. When your tongue brushes through your teeth and you feel something different, it might be a sign of something unusual is going on.

Your tooth filling might unknowingly have been removed, or your tooth has been chipped can be a sure sign that it needs your dentist's attention. Having it checked will not only prevent further damage, but will also correct the problem immediately.

The pressures involved of using your teeth everyday will ultimately affect your pearly whites in the long run. If you notice these symptoms, call our dental office right away and we will be happy to help.
