BROKEN TOOTH / TEETH
Broken tooth / teeth are generally a cosmetic cause of concern. A tooth can be broken at various angles (chipped off tip of the tooth – fractured crown of the tooth)
- How can my broken tooth be fixed ?
Depending on the extent of damage in your tooth, various types of treatments can be planned.
Chipped off edges to small fractures = simple filling can be planned.
Medium crown fracture = x-ray is taken (if the tooth is vital), crown can be planned.
Large crown fracture = x-ray is taken (if the tooth is non vital), RCT along with crown can be planned.
- How much will it cost ?
Depending on the extent of damage and the correct line of treatment for you, the cost could range from Rs. 800 for a normal filling upto Rs. 15,000 for complex RCT and crown.
- Will it be painful ?
If the extent of damage is limited, the procedure will be painless. In case you experience any discomfort, local anaesthesia can be used to relieve you of any associated pain. Post the treatment, usually no pain is observed. In case you experience any discomfort, you will already be on medication.
