A broken tooth can feel scary and can cause you to think all sorts of things. Of course, our hope is that you will remain calm should this happen to you, call us, and come see us for treatment. What might happen, though, could include any number of things! You might feel quite confident about immediately scheduling a visit. Or, your brain may formulate some very interesting (and often seriously compelling) ideas that can make the experience less than pleasant. Consider thoughts to let go, should they arise.
#1: “I’m Going To Lose My Tooth!”
Yes, it is possible that once you end up with a broken tooth, you might end up losing that tooth. However, generally speaking, if you come in to our team right away once the damage occurs (remember, we offer emergency dental care), then we can likely salvage it. Even if the tooth must be removed, however, we can replace it. No matter what, you can look forward to a future with a complete smile.
#2: “Maybe I Should Learn To Live With It.”
This is never something to give in to. Yes, you might be able to tolerate the broken tooth for a little while. That is, until it becomes infected, breaks more, hurts quite a lot, makes eating difficult, and even further problems begin to develop. Don’t try to accept that you have a damaged tooth. Let us fix it!
#3: “I Bet I Can Fix It On My Own.”
The simple truth is, you cannot fix a broken tooth on your own. You don’t have the techniques, education, materials, etc. See us! We can quickly and beautifully repair the damage!
