Missing or broken teeth, or increased sensitivity? A dental prosthesis could be your solution.
If you’ve lost one or more teeth due to breakage or other reasons, there are a number of ways to replace them with dentures. Replacing a missing tooth is crucial to maintaining the proper alignment and occlusion of your teeth. This helps maintain a balanced masticatory function, ensuring optimal oral health.
A very common question we get is, “What do you do when you have a broken tooth?” If you find yourself in this situation, it’s essential to make an appointment with a dentist as soon as possible. While waiting for the dentist, avoid eating hard foods and apply a cold compress if necessary. Prompt treatment of a broken tooth can prevent further complications and help you regain a healthy smile.
