Broken or chipped teeth are quite easy to repair since it does not involve any surgical processes. Depending on the depth of a crack, several treatment processes can be applied, including bonding, root canal & crown placement, polishing, tooth extraction, and implant placement.
A root canal will be required before filling up the crack if the damage goes too deep into the pulp. During the process, the damaged pulp is removed and the area is sanitized before filling it with gutta-percha. This is a rubbery material that will repair the crack.
Root canals has historically been known to be a horrific experience in the past. However, a lot of this has changed thanks to the technological advancements in the medical industry.
