If your tooth has been broken, fractured, or cracked, see an emergency dentist right away. The tooth could become infected or further damaged, leading to the loss of the tooth. While you wait, you can try these temporary self-care remedies:
- Immediately rinse your mouth with warm water.
- Put pressure on the bleeding area with a piece of gauze.
- Apply a cold compress to reduce swelling.
- If you can find it, wrap the broken piece of tooth in wet gauze and bring it to the dentist.
- To prevent your tongue from being cut or damaged, cover the jagged edge of your broken tooth with temporary dental cement or wax. They should be available at your local grocery store or pharmacy.
Risk factors for a broken tooth include:
- Age: People over fifty are more likely to experience broken teeth because tooth enamel weakens as we age.
- Activities: Playing a contact sport like football or hockey or participating in high-fall-risk activities like skateboarding and gymnastics increases the possibility of broken teeth due to trauma. It is essential to wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth.
- Previously broken teeth: If you have broken a tooth in the past, it will be more susceptible to breaking in the future, even after it has been repaired. So, be extra careful with that tooth.
- Tooth decay: Cavities and tooth decay weaken the tooth’s enamel, making it more prone to breakage.
- Habits: Opening packages or bottles with your teeth can damage them.
- Diet: Consuming large quantities of sugary or acidic foods, such as coffee, fruit juices, and spicy foods, weakens the enamel. Acidic foods and stomach acids erode the enamel and expose the tooth’s surface, increasing fracture risk.
There are a variety of dental procedures for a broken tooth, depending on the severity of the break.
- Dental Filling or Bonding: If the crack or fracture is minor, your dentist may use a filling. Your dentist might use a tooth-coloured composite resin called bonding for broken front teeth or those that can be seen when you smile.
- Dental Crown: A dental crown reinforces and holds a broken tooth in place if it is at risk of falling apart.
- Root Canal Therapy: The damaged pulp may need to be removed if the fracture extends to the pulp chamber.
- Extraction: If the root and nerves of your tooth are severely damaged and cannot be saved, we may need to extract the tooth.
Depending on the treatment required, the cost of dental treatment for a broken tooth may vary.
1. Dental Filling: $150 to $400 per tooth
2. Dental Bonding: $260 to $470 per tooth
3. Dental Crown: $1,500 to $3,000 per tooth
4. Root Canal Therapy: $600 to $750 per canal
5. Extraction: $190 to $450 per tooth
