Dental work like crowns and bridges are often used to repair or replace a severely compromised or missing tooth. They are typically created from durable materials meant to replicate natural tooth enamel.

Just like your natural teeth, it is possible to chip or fracture a piece of dental work. This is even more likely to occur if you have a bad habit of chewing on objects, opening packages with your teeth, or chewing ice.

If you have a damaged crown or bridge, you should not delay in calling 508-990-9900 to seek care with Dr. Purvesh Malaviya’s clinic. Procrastination increases your chances of suffering serious complications.

If an accidental blow to the face has left blood or debris in your mouth, you can gently rinse it away with lukewarm saltwater. Any other necessary cleaning procedures should be left to Dr. Malaviya and his staff.

If an anchoring abutment of a bridge has been compromised, Dr. Malaviya might need to perform a root canal. This will maintain the tooth structure needed to anchor a new bridge or crown.

If you live in the New Bedford, Massachusetts, area and you have suffered damage to a dental bridge or dental crown, you should not delay in calling 508-990-9900 to seek care at Creative Dental Group.
