Broken Tooth Leederville

Any part of a tooth can be damaged. It may be obvious, though this is not always the case. If there is pain and discomfort while chewing, or if the teeth suddenly become sensitive to extreme temperatures, a tooth may be broken.

A broken tooth is one of the most common dental emergencies that can occur; should be handled with urgency to save the tooth.

Dentists on Vincent offers a same-day dental emergency appointment to attend to your needs as soon as possible.

Our dental team of quick and responsive staff is experienced in dealing with almost all kinds of dental emergencies.


Symptoms of Broken Tooth

If you have these symptoms, there may be more complicated damage that needs immediate dental treatment:

  • pain while chewing or biting
  • swelling on gums around the affected area
  • sensitivity to extreme temperatures
  • recurring pain around the teeth and gums

Causes of Broken Tooth

  • Biting down too hard
  • Excessive teeth grinding (bruxism)
  • Dental trauma
  • Injury to the face
  • Existing filling that weakens the tooth structure
  • Sudden temperature change

When to See a Dentist

If you have or if you think you might have a broken tooth, schedule an appointment with their Leederville dentist immediately, especially when there are pain and discomfort.

While waiting for your Leederville dentist, the following measures can help relieve discomfort:

  • Rinse your mouth with lukewarm saltwater to keep it clean
  • Take over-the-counter pain medications
  • To reduce swelling, apply a cold compress against the cheek, outside the affected area

The longer a broken tooth goes untreated, the more difficult it may be for your Leederville dentist to save is healthy parts. Complications may also occur, such as infection.

Unlike a fractured bone, a broken tooth will not heal on its own.

Despite receiving dental treatments, some cracks may continue to spread, resulting in tooth loss.

Placing a dental crown on a broken tooth provides maximum protection.

Frequently Asked

Does a broken tooth hurt?
When the external parts of the tooth are broken, chewing can cause the pieces to move, and the pulp can become disrupted.

Over time, the dental pulp may start to become damaged until it can no longer heal itself.

The tooth may not only cause pain while chewing but may also become sensitive to extreme temperatures.

After treatment, will the broken tooth heal?
Unlike a fractured bone, a broken tooth will not be able to heal itself.

Despite receiving treatments, some cracks may continue to spread towards different directions, resulting in tooth loss.

Placing a dental crown on a broken tooth provides maximum protection but does not guarantee success in all cases.
