Worn, broken or chipped teeth can be a symptom of an underlying problem with the TMJ or occlusion (bite). Medford dentist Dr. Poorva Parnaik will evaluate your condition to identify the reason why teeth are worn or broken and develop a personalized treatment plan to deliver you with long lasting, comfortable results.
Broken Tooth Before & After
This patient came to our Medford dental office concerned about a broken tooth on the bottom right. After evaluating the bite, Dr. Parnaik identified that the broken tooth was a result of an uneven bite. Tooth crowding was contributing to the poor occlusion and a risk for gum health.
Dr. Parnaik recommended Invisalign® treatment which took 5 months to complete. The patient also received teeth bleaching treatment which is complimentary in our office. The results are improved health and function. Esthetics was an added benefit and the patient is happy to show it.
Single Tooth Repair
For a single chipped or broken tooth caused by an injury or accident, Dr. Poorva Parnaik offers a range of treatment options such as tooth bonding, veneers, or dental crowns. Our goal is to repair your chipped or broken tooth as quickly as possible with the least amount of dentistry.
Ideally, all of your teeth should make contact at the same time and with the same force. In patients with occlusal disorder or TMJ dysfunction, there is an improper alignment of the jaw joints and/or teeth. When teeth make contact out of alignment with others, it can cause them to wear, chip or break.
Depending on your condition, Dr. Parnaik may recommend one or several treatments to restore balance and stability. Dr. Parnaik may restore balance to the bite by reshaping teeth, using orthodontics or other treatments. Fixing the underlying cause of the problem will ensure that treatment results will be long lasting and comfortable.
