Having a chipped or cracked tooth can be extremely painful. If you suffer from a chipped tooth, Dr. Mark Hughen can help identify where your chipped tooth is and treat it, thus easing your pain and restoring your tooth’s health. If you think that you are suffering from a chipped or cracked tooth, please visit Primary Dental Clinic and schedule your appointment to receive your chipped tooth repair in Midland, Texas.

Chipped or cracked teeth occur when a tooth has a crack in it that is too small to appear on an x-ray. A chipped tooth can be caused by a variety of things, including clenching or grinding your teeth, putting too much pressure on a tooth, and having a large filling. Chipped teeth are most commonly found in the back molars because most of the force that comes from our mouth is absorbed in these teeth.

Having a chipped tooth can cause several painful side effects. The most common side effects include intense pain while chewing, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, and pain that comes and goes. If you feel that you are suffering from a chipped tooth, it is important to contact your dentist right away. Once your dentist has located the chipped tooth, you can develop a proper treatment plan. Most chipped teeth can be treated with fillings or crowns. However, occasionally, the chip will extend past the gum line and into the lower parts of the tooth. In these situations, a tooth extraction is often necessary. For more information about how to identify and treat a chipped tooth, and to schedule your chipped tooth repair, please call or visit our office.
