Reattachment of Fractured Teeth
Approximately 25% of the population under the age of 18 years sustain traumatic injury in the form of anterior crown fracture. Broken teeth can be reattached if the broken pieces are taken to the dentist and the patient should reach the dentist as early as possible. The broken teeth should never be rubbed vigoursly. Just wash the teeth with water and keep it wet in water or milk.
Diagnosing Tooth Fractures
Many dentists have experienced the patient who complains of an unlocateable tooth pain. Sometimes it is a sharp pain that causes a reflex reaction when chewing or when eating crunchy foods or sweets. In many instances, the most frustrating ones, a radiographic (xray) and clinical examination reveals nothing except healthy teeth with small fillings. Tiny cracks, fissures or microscopic fractures can occur within a tooth structure that remains hidden from radiographic view.
