What Happens When I Crack a Tooth?

It can be an extremely scary experience when you crack a tooth. Our teeth are supposed to be strong, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t susceptible to damage. You could crack a tooth by falling over, having a sports injury, and, in some cases, even eating. So, what do you do when it happens? The best thing to do once you’ve cracked a tooth is call a root canal dentist to fix it for you. At Kern Dental Specialties, we accommodate emergency appointments to handle tooth pain quickly.

If you don’t have your cracked tooth taken care of soon, it can cause you more pain in the future. First, it can be very painful to do common things like speak or eat. But the longer you leave a cracked tooth, the easier it is to become infected. In those cases you might need a root canal or even dental implant surgery, since you could lose the entire tooth. That’s why it’s important to contact Kern Dental Specialties as soon as you can. We do everything we can to undo the damage with bonding or veneers. If you need further dental procedures, we will make sure you feel comfortable

There’s no better dentist in bakersfield for managing cracked teeth, dental implants, root canals, and more than Kern Dental Specialties. Some procedures are best when done by a trained endodontist and we have the most skilled, friendliest team in the entire dental world. Call today to make an appointment. We’re here to take your pain away so you can get back to your normal routine.
