For many years, the only solution for a cracked tooth was extraction, but today’s dental technologies offer more options than ever. While extraction is still necessary for certain cracks that dip below the surface of the gumline, many teeth are easily salvaged and protected with a crown or a root canal/crown combination.
At Deerhaven Family Dentistry in Traverse City, MI, we want to do whatever we can to help you retain your original tooth. When you schedule an appointment with us, our team will review your x-rays, provide options, and recommend the best course of action.
A cracked tooth is nothing to be ashamed of. As we age or experience stress, it’s common to clench or grind which naturally leads to fractures. But you don’t have to struggle with a jagged or painful tooth. Call Deerhaven Family Dentistry in Traverse City, MI to schedule your appointment today.
