Cracked Tooth Crisis: Does My Tooth Need To Be Extracted?

Breaking a tooth can be a stressful experience, and you may wonder whether extraction is necessary. The answer depends on the extent of the damage, so it’s crucial to seek professional dental care as soon as possible.

Minor breaks that only affect the enamel can usually be repaired with a filling or crown. However, if the break is severe and extends into the pulp or root, extraction may be necessary.

Delaying treatment can lead to complications, such as infection or the need for more invasive procedures. Even if a broken tooth doesn’t cause pain, it’s essential to have it examined by a dentist to prevent further damage.

At Dental Arts of Hastings-On-Hudson, our team of experienced dentists can assess the extent of the damage and recommend the best course of treatment. We offer a variety of options to restore your tooth’s function and appearance, including fillings, crowns, and dental implants.

Additionally, fixing a broken tooth can have therapeutic benefits, such as improving your self-confidence and reducing anxiety. Studies have shown that a healthy smile can positively impact mental health, and restoring a broken tooth can be an important step in achieving that.

Don’t let a broken tooth cause you unnecessary stress.

We’re dedicated to providing quality dental services and helping you achieve optimal oral health.

Very gentle and thorough cleaning. I appreciate the great customer service and no sales pressure like so many dentists. They just care about you and your teeth.

First timer here. Excellent service from start to finish. Warm and attentive front desk. Always a gamble with a new dental hygienist, but fortunately no assault charges will pressed on Nuvia—in fact, the complete opposite, I’ll lavish praise. Glad to say I checked out of there—after a thorough exam by the doctor, post-cleaning—painlessly, and with tingling teeth. Will be returning.
