Dental restorations like dental bridges, dental crowns, and dental veneers are typically created from durable materials intended to withstand the rigors of daily biting and chewing. However, there are still things that can chip, fracture, or damage your dental work.
This is even more likely to occur if you use your teeth to open packaging, nibble on desktop items, or grind your teeth while you sleep. Any of these things could cause a chip or fracture on a crown, bridge, or dental veneer.
In a situation like this you should not delay in seeking treatment at Dr. Mark Kupec’s dental office. Any delay increases your chances of suffering significant complications.
While you’re waiting for your appointment, you should not attempt to clean, brush, floss or manipulate any part of the damaged dental work. If you have blood or unwanted material in your mouth you can rinse it away with a little lukewarm saltwater. Any other necessary cleaning procedures should be reserved Dr. Mark Kupec’s and the professional tools and techniques at his disposal.
Once Dr. Mark Kupec has assessed the severity of the problem he will recommend the most applicable treatment method. This might include replacing the damaged dental work or possibly performing a root canal.
