Chipped or Broken Tooth Repair

tooth repair treatment nm

Accidents, using your teeth as tools, nighttime grinding—they can all lead to a chipped or broken tooth. To maintain your dental health and restore your beautiful smile, the tooth must be repaired. Fife Dental Care in Rio Rancho, NM can help you find the best solution to repair your broken or chipped tooth.

Contact Fife Dental Care online or by phone at 505.994.1700.

Chipped or Broken Tooth Repair Options

The restorative procedures to repair a broken or chipped tooth vary based on tooth location and severity of the damage. Dr. Fife will inform you of all viable options, which most often include:

In the event that the tooth cannot be repaired, Dr. Fife may discuss tooth extraction and replacement options, like a tooth implant or dental bridge.

Broken Tooth Repair for Dental Health

When the broken or chipped tooth is visible, repair is necessary to restore the appearance of your smile. Because they are less visible, chips or fractures in back teeth are often ignored, but broken tooth repair is not just a cosmetic issue.

When tooth enamel is compromised, bacteria can infect the tooth. If left untreated, infection can progress to the pulp chamber and nerve, possibly causing an abscess. Eliminating infection from deep within the tooth requires an invasive treatment like a root canal procedure or tooth extraction.

A Possible Dental Emergency

Damage to the tooth nerve can jeopardize the health of the tooth. If you experience pain as a result of your chipped or broken tooth, that means the root is exposed. Seek emergency dental care. For non-emergencies, please tell us about your broken or chipped tooth when you contact us to schedule an appointment, and we will make every effort to get you in quickly.
