Cracked tooth? Your Fort Lauderdale Cosmetic Dentist has treatment options for your cracked tooth.

There are several types of cracked teeth.  If you suspect a cracked tooth, schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. As with any emergency dental visit or toothache, Dr. Wasselle or Dr. Rotroff will first relieve your dental pain. This may be done by numbing the area using local anesthetic.  Your comfort is important. Once you are comfortable,  your Fort Lauderdale dentist will use an x-ray to diagnose the extent of structural damage to your tooth and make treatment recommendations based on the extent of the crack. Treatment may be as simple as a crown, or a root canal if the crack extends to the nerve, or, in more extreme cases, extracting the tooth.  If a tooth extraction is necessary, our dentists have options to  replace your missing tooth including dental bridges and dental implants.

What Are Treatment Options for a Suspected Cracked Tooth?


Regular checkups with our dentist in Fort Lauderdale can help you avoid a cracked tooth.  Your dentist can see aging fillings and replace them to maintain your tooth's integrity.  If you have a tendancy to clench or grind your teeth, your dentist may suggest a night guard.  If you play contact sports, your dentist may suggest a protective mouthguard.  Of course, we can not always predict when a tooth may break or crack.  Cracked teeth can cause a painful toothache or dental emergency. They can even become infected if not treated. If you have a cracked tooth, don't delay – call Excellence in Dentistry at 954-928-1666. Dr. Nancy Rotroff or Dr. Gerard Wasselle will fix your cracked tooth and relieve your pain today.  Select the best cosmetic dentist in Fort Lauderdale to restore your smile.
