Cracked Tooth Repair in Boca Raton, FL

Cracked ToothThough the teeth are incredibly strong, they are still susceptible to damage. Even people who exercise exceptional dental hygiene can experience problems with their teeth, such as a cracked tooth.

Defined as Cracked Tooth Syndrome, this common dental ailment occurs when a crack develops in the tooth, and typically, the damage is so small that it doesn’t show up on an X-ray. The damage may even be located underneath the gum, making it difficult to determine which tooth has sustained a crack. This condition usually affects the molars.

There are several reasons a cracked tooth can occur. Most often, this condition develops as a result of chewing on something hard, such as ice or nuts, or it may be caused by grinding or clenching the teeth. And, though a cracked tooth can happen to anyone, people who have large fillings in their teeth or who have had a previous root canal may be more prone to developing this type of dental problem.

A cracked tooth can present with a variety of symptoms, including pain when chewing or pressing the teeth together, or pain the damaged tooth is exposed to hot or cold temperatures.

Treatment for Your Cracked Tooth

If you are experiencing pain in your teeth, for any reason, and you live in Boca Raton, FL, the best advice is to schedule an appointment with Ericsson Dental as soon as possible. If left untreated, the crack can get bigger, which can cause a piece of the tooth to break off, or can lead to an infection in the gums that surround the tooth.

The treatment for a cracked tooth depends entirely on the location and the severity of the fracture. In more severe cases, a root canal or endodontic surgery may be necessary to correct the fracture. If the crack is visible, Dr. Ericsson may recommend a number of procedures to conceal the damage including:

  • Bonding, a process that involves applying and adhering a tooth-colored resin to the affected site to mask the damage.
  • Veneers, which involves creating a custom-made shell that is applied to the front of the tooth.
  • A crown, which will cap the entire tooth, improving its strength and appearance.

No matter what type of treatment you require for your cracked tooth, you can rest assured that Dr. Ericsson and his staff with provide you with the most comprehensive treatment possible.

Ericsson Dental is hands down the best dentist office I’ve ever been to. I felt no pain whatsoever and this was truly an enjoyable experience from the amazing 4K TVs to the incredible service. Dr. Ericsson went out of his way to fix my teeth at the most favorable price on the market. It is a family owned enterprise and it truly feels like you are part of the family when you walk into this practice. People travel across the country to see him and I see why. If you have never been to Ericsson Dental I highly recommend that you start now, I promise you will be more than happy with what you are going to get.

I recently was referred to Dr. Ericsson by my former Dentist. I had quite a few problems going on with my teeth and for years I didn't even want to smile anymore or have my picture taken .Dr. Ericsson took a few x-rays and in length explained what he recommended. Long story short, I agreed to a full mouth restoration! ( Especially after looking at his before and after photo album) Dr. Ericsson did an outstanding job! I constantly get compliments from my friends, strangers, and even my other Doctors. During the procedure Dr. Erickson and his wonderful staff were always so passionate and professional. Dr. Ericsson also worked out a payment plan with me over a time that was budget friendly for me. I Highly recommend Dr. Ericsson to everyone now ! Not only has this boosted my confidence and self esteem again, but its changed my life! Thank you Dr. Ericsson!!

Dr Ericsson is an amazing dentist. I read his outstanding reviews and decided to use him for replacement of a bridge. Not only did he do an excellent job but his price was extremely reasonable. I would recommend him to anyone.

The most gentle and thorough cleaning I’ve ever experienced. I have always required local numbing and gas for teeth cleaning at other dental offices. Not anymore! Great experience, from scheduling to services and billing, these guys are the best! Flexibility of appointments, skill level of staff, and professionalism & friendliness of entire office was refreshing and impressive.

The best Dentist ever. Broke a front tooth on Christmas Eve. Called Dr Mark at 8:30 at night. He answered the phone and told me to be in his office the next morning on Christmas Day! Who does that. Dr Mark does. He had a temp. front tooth in place in three hours. There is no one better Dentist out there.
