Your dentist will look to repair a broken tooth depending on the severity of the damage. You should always consult your dentist as soon as possible if you break a tooth, as any delay could increase the risk of an extraction.

Key takeaways:

  • A dental crown can restore a tooth with a broken piece, capping the tooth to prevent further damage.
  • A severely broken tooth may require a root canal which cleans out and seals the inside of the tooth.
  • Teeth where the break reaches below the gumline may be beyond repair and could require extraction.

"Your dentist can let you know if an extraction is your only choice, and discuss your tooth replacement options with you during your appointment."
