Risks of Not Replacing a Missing Tooth: you can lose more than just your tooth
Fractured and chipped teeth are among the most common types of dental trauma. In this case, your dentist will first work to re-attach the piece of broken tooth. If that isn’t possible, you may be offered a tooth-colored filling. A dental cap is the most appropriate treatment when you have lost a significant portion of a tooth, which cannot be replaced. Root canal therapy is an option when the pulp of a tooth becomes exposed, or you sustain a deep fracture.
These are just some of the possible treatments following injury to your mouth. Your dentist will determine what is right for you following your evaluation.
