Is it possible for a tooth to heal on its own?

A good habit for everyone is to go to the dental clinic regularly. With the advancements in dental technology, people can preserve their natural teeth for a longer period of time. Things can go wrong even if you visit the dentist. Crack-inducing activities, such as grinding and clenching, or chewing hard objects, can cause your tooth to crack. Depending on how severe the crack is, you may choose to do nothing. A broken tooth can't be fixed, but it is like your bones that contain many blood vessels. Here's what to do about cracked teeth.
Signs of a cracked tooth
These are the symptoms of a cracked tooth:

  • Feel sharp pain while chewing, especially when you are releasing your bite
  • Sensitivity for hot and cold temperatures
  • The pain is unpredictable and hard to locate
  • Swollen and irritated gums around the broken tooth

Treatments for cracked teeth

  • Dental bonding or fillings: If your tooth only has a few cracks or chips, the dentist may still be capable of saving it. The resin will fill your tooth, seal the enamel, protect the pulp, and protect it from microorganisms.
  • Root canal treatment: A root canal is an option if the crack extends to the roots and causes injury. This dental treatment removes the affected pulp and prevents the teeth from becoming infected.
  • Crown: A crown can be porcelain or ceramic cap to protect a broken tooth. A dental crown is recommended by your dentist to repair the damage to the tooth enamel and protect weak teeth. It may take two weeks to complete the dental crown.
