What to Do If You Break a Tooth

Teeth are strong because they are built with protective layers to keep the structure and everything inside safe. But sometimes, accidents happen and teeth get broken. In most cases, a trip to your emergency dentist in Hazlet will be necessary. The treatment you will need depends on the severity of the broken tooth.

Watch this video to see what will happen when you break a tooth. If you have had an emergency, such as a traumatic injury, be sure to contact your dentist as soon as possible. You will need treatment quickly, especially if your tooth is cracked or dislodged. If you are experiencing severe pain, your tooth’s nerves could be damaged. Once again, this requires immediate treatment that your dentist will determine, such as a root canal. The sooner you seek treatment, the more successful and affordable it will be.
