A broken tooth can not only be painful, but it also needs to be addressed quickly. Teeth can break for many reasons, most of the more common reasons include, trauma, dental decay, and biting on hard foods or trying to open things with teeth.
Trauma – can involve anything from falling over, being hit with something, a sports injury, or an accident, such as falling off your bike etc.
Dental decay – it is important to brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time and you should also floss at least once a day. Even if your oral health habits are good, there are times when you can get dental decay. You could have weakened enamel for a number of reasons, including genetics. We offer a no judgment appointment, where you will feel comfortable, even if you have not looked after your teeth properly. The emergency dentist in Wood Green will never judge you and are there to help you and relieve any pain you are in.
Biting hard foods – this is such a common occurrence, where a tooth has been damaged from a person biting on some hard foods. Other common problems are when people try to open a bottle or packaging with their teeth.
Treatment for a broken tooth is dependent on the severity of the break and how much of the tooth remains. You will need to have a proper, professional assessment at the practice. Most teeth can have treatment to help save them and they will certainly try to do this.
If your braces break, this can cause a lot of problems. Problems with braces usually include:
- Broken braces (brackets
- Broken wires
- Loose bands
- Loose braces
- Wires sticking out
It is best to call the emergency dentist on 020 8245 7575 as you may need to visit the dentist straight away. This is particularly true if the broken or loose brace is causing trauma to your cheeks, gums, or tongue. If your problem with your braces occurred due to an injury, such as a blow to the mouth, you should seek help immediately.
Dentures can break for a number of reasons. It could be:
- General wear and tear
- Ill-fitting dentures
- Dentures which have become loose over time
- Dropping the dentures accidentally
Most dentures are able to be repaired. You would need to bring as much of the denture to the dentist. Sometimes, the dentist can fix the dentures at the practice on the spot. However, in some cases, the denture may need to be sent to a laboratory to be repaired. This can take several hours. It is not a good idea to try and repair the dentures yourself with superglue, for example, as this can cause greater damage and more cost to the patient in the long run. As well as making the dentures uncomfortable for the wearer.
