If you bite into a piece of hard candy and break a tooth, you could end up with a lot of pain in your mouth, especially if the part of the tooth that’s left has sharp edges. If a piece of the tooth is gone and the root is exposed, that pain could be even worse. Unless you see your local dentist soon, that pain will continue and you could be looking at infection or other problems setting in that could affect your entire body. It would be a good idea for you to make an appointment with Dr. Tod A. Bigelow to see if he can use a Hattiesburg dental crown to help save that broken tooth.
Sometimes, if the tooth is too badly damaged, it may need to be pulled, but most of the time, dentists will do their best to try to save your tooth so you don’t need to have an implant or bridge made to fill in the open space. A Hattiesburg dental crown is really the best option to help save a chipped tooth, especially if the root is intact. A dental crown is simply a false tooth or cap is placed over the broken tooth to reinforce it and save the rest of the tooth from needing to be extracted.
When you come to the office of Dr. Bigelow to have a Hattiesburg dental crown placed, our experienced local dentist will create a false tooth dental crown that looks and feels like your other, natural teeth. Fitting a dental crown is something that can be done by most dentists, but if you want a crown that’s virtually undetectable, you’ll want to come to our Hattiesburg dental office for excellent cosmetic dental work. Just give us a call at 601-582-1623 and make an appointment. Remember that a dental crown will take at least 2 appointments to complete. We’re sure you will be very happy with the work Dr. Bigelow will do for you.
