You might think that if a person had a tooth fracture, he or she would definitely know about it and seek out the restorative or cosmetic dentistry procedures necessary to address the problem. However, tooth fractures vary in severity, and they can start out so minor that people don’t even realize that their teeth are affected until the fracture becomes larger and threatens the health of the tooth.
This is one of the many reasons that it is important to visit the dentist at least twice a year for thorough oral exams and professional cleanings. By having a minor fracture identified in its earliest possible stages, you can have it treated as conservatively as possible, while avoiding future pain and preventing the need for more extensive restorative dentistry treatments.
Whether patients have fractures that affect only their enamel, small fractures that are not yet causing them pain, or major fractures that are putting their teeth at risk, Dr. Nathaniel Podilsky offers a comprehensive range of treatment options for tooth fractures. At his Edmonton, AB cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry practice, Dr. Podilsky uses the most advanced techniques available to restore form, function, and health to fractured teeth. Patients emerge with their smiles whole and intact, aesthetically and structurally.
