Teeth are frequently in harm’s way, one moment you are biting on your food, and the next moment your tooth got cracked. Several other explanations for a fractured tooth could range from getting hit by a ball while playing cricket to meeting a road traffic accident. Clenching, teeth grinding, and biting on hard objects like candy or ice are also a few reasons causing the tooth to break. There can be different levels of fractures which may involve enamel, dentin, and pulp.

Treatment can vary from using tooth-colored material to cover a small chipped tooth to root canal treatment followed by a dental crown. When a patient comes to the dental clinic with a broken tooth, the treatment starts with a detailed case history followed by an intraoral and extra-oral examination. The vitality of the tooth is checked before planning the treatment.

Following are the top treatment plans to fix a broken tooth:

  • Tooth-Colored Material and Veneers

If the tooth has a minor chip and it only includes the enamel (outer surface), no emergency treatment is required. It can often be treated with dental bonding which involves layering on durable, tooth-colored material to reshape the tooth. This is a very simple procedure that can be finished in one sitting. Minor chips can also be repaired with the help of veneers made of porcelain which covers the entire front surface of the tooth and not just the chipped area.

  • Capping of Tooth with Crown

When the fractured area involves a large part of the tooth, a crown is used to cover it. Before placing the crown, the tooth is restored followed by its preparation. This treatment requires at least two appointments. A temporary crown is placed in the first appointment and the patient is recalled once the permanent crown is ready. There are different types of crowns available depending on the type of material used. For anterior teeth Zirconia, Porcelain, or E-max crowns are used and for posterior teeth, Porcelain fused to metal or metal crowns can be used.

  • Root Canal Treatment

When the fractured tooth is approaching the pulp or the pulp is involved, root canal treatment is done before capping the tooth with a crown. This is a more intense treatment plan where multiple appointments are required. Many people worry that a root canal will be painful, something that was true in the past but not anymore! Today, with advanced digital technology and anesthesia – a root canal is a comfortable procedure. A root canal-treated tooth can last a lifetime with proper care. RCT dental treatment has a high success rate and is undoubtedly less expensive than tooth extraction and replacement with a bridge or implant.

  • Pulp Capping and Pulpotomy

When the tooth is still developing or is a well-developed young permanent tooth, pulp capping and pulpotomy are done to preserve the vital pulp tissue so that continued root development occurs. This process may avoid the need for root canal therapy. This procedure usually depends on the size of exposure, presence of hemorrhage, and time elapsed since the injury.

Whatever I can write about the team at The Dental Roots will not provide justice to their world class customer service, period. I firmly believed that honest and dedicated customer service only existed in countries such as USA where I lived for a while. But, my experience with Dental Roots has turned that perception upside down. Seven and a half years ago I had my root canal and crown treatment done with them. There was a minor chipping of the crown recently. I am no longer living in Gurugram but I was in Delhi/NCR for other work for less than a week and when I approached the Dental Roots with my concern, immediately Dr Dheeraj removed the defective crown and got me a replacement crown in just two days, all of this was done at zero fee, even after seven and a half years! Their facilities are world class and hygienic with five star like ambience. Everyone from receptionist to doctors and assistants are highly professional and responsive to customer needs. Highly recommend them!

Had an awesome session at The Dental Roots Clinic with Dr.Ritika She is a really good professional and a great person! I had a great time during my visit to The Dental Roots clinic. Dr.Dheeraj Setia's team of Doctors are highly professional, they listened to my concerns patiently and after sharing the overview, I had Teeth Whitening treatment done. Dr.Dheeraj Setia's staff followed proper sanitization procedures and ambience of the setup is very pleasing.

Dr.Ritika showed so much care and concern that I forgot that she is my dentist and came back earning a friend in her! I strongly recommend The Dental Roots Clinic
