A tooth breaks, chips or feels loose…but it doesn’t hurt. We see it in the dental office everyday, small problems that turn into big problems down the line. When a tooth breaks or feels loose, something has been compromised and if it’s not fixed immediately, bigger problems can occur such as infection, more tooth structure can break off or you could even lose the tooth altogether.
The key is: Don’t delay. At the first sign of a problem, see your dentist. Many times, you can actually SAVE yourself money by getting treatment quickly. You could possibly avoid, for example, having to have a root canal or losing the tooth (in which case you would have to replace the missing tooth with a bridge or implant).
