Dangers of Not Treating a Broken Tooth Immediately
Posted on 9/10/2019 by Dr. Leo Townsend, DDS
If you break a tooth, you will definitely want to fix it. Sometimes patients will wait to fix it if the chipped tooth isn't too bad or is in a spot that can't be seen well. This is a mistake. Even if the broken or chipped tooth isn't bothering you, it doesn't mean that it is not causing damage that you simply can't see. A broken tooth, if left untreated, can cause you some medical problems. It can also cause you sensitivity issues, make it difficult to eat certain foods, and can cause pain. What Can Happen if I Don't Fix My Tooth? The most obvious problem you may have is sensitivity to hot and cold. Food or beverages that are too hot or too cold can cause your broken or chipped tooth to hurt. Once the heat or cold is removed, the pain goes away, but it does make eating and drinking more challenging and less pleasant. Simple pain is another problem that a chipped or broken tooth can cause. If the broken tooth has exposed a nerve, you may experience excruciating pain. The good news is that you can preserve the part that broke off if you quickly place it in milk. You can bring this to our office and we may be able to reattach the tooth. This will not only save you money, but it will let you keep your natural teeth. Another big problem that you can get from having a chipped or broken tooth is a build-up of bacteria. If the bacteria build up enough, it can cause the tooth to get infected. This is called an abscess. In addition, the bacteria can get into your bloodstream and cause an infection elsewhere in your body. Another potential problem is that it can cause nerve damage, which could lead to the need for a root canal. Find out how we can help with a broken tooth by giving our office a call!...
