WHEN YOU HAVE A BROKEN MASS TO THE GUM… OR PARTIALLY
Most dental fractures (rupture of the visible part of the mass) also result in significant loss of healthy teeth, especially those located below the gums. In this case, the survival prognosis of the tooth will have to be established. There are cases when the mass is so broken that it becomes indicated for extraction and replacement with a dental implant or dental work.
TREATMENT FOR HEALTHY ROOT MASSES
For partially broken masses, the actual treatment will be performed, namely the restoration of the tooth through one or more associated operations:
- coronary obturation (filling)
- canal treatment (removing the nerve and sealing the space in which the nerve is located)
- restoration of the old treatment (if it exists) and reconstruction of the tooth with a fiberglass device (a prefabricated "stick" that is cemented inside the tooth and gives it the mechanical strength it lost through fracture)
- applying the dental crown, the cap that resembles the shape and color of the patient's tooth that protects against another tooth fracture. The dental crown is made in a special laboratory of dental technique, separate from that of the dental clinic)
TREATMENT FOR MASSES WITH COMPROMISED ROOT
For masses whose root can no longer be saved, the following treatment is recommended:
- oral cavity remediation: complete treatment to sanitize and remove possible cavities and tooth infections, including descaling, brushing and air-flow
- insertion of the dental implant
- application of the dental crown
Even if the massage broke up to the gums, they only partially healed, in order to save the root and the remaining part of the tooth, go to the dentist as soon as possible. And if it all happened years ago and you didn't act on time, well, it's never too late.
So, if you want your teeth to look perfect, take your heart in your teeth and come and plan the best version of your smile!
