Broken,Chipped or Dark front teeth : Say No to them !!

The front teeth or The Incisors as we doctors call them are the first thing that meets the eyes when you meet some one.They define your personality and beautify your face.

However these teeth are also the most vulnerable to fracture or breakage.There are various causes for the same :-

  • During a mighty fall which you took while playing any sport.
  • When you got involved in a fight and the opponent punched you
  • During an accident when you hit the dashboard or steering of your car.
  • When you try to drink from a water bottle and the edge of it hits your teeth.

If the force is beyond the strength of the front tooth or teeth,it will break it.Else it will just block its blood supply and with time spanning over few years, the tooth will start to get darker and finally it will become bluish black.

Indians have always been negligent about their oral health as well as dental looks.Teeth come last in the priority of getting a treatment.general attitude is ” how does it matter,we will seek a treatment when it pains.”

However we fail to realize that how important teeth are in leaving a lasting impression during an interview,a marriage proposal,teaching a class of students ,or while approaching someone you want to be friends with.

Broken or Dark teeth not only look bad aesthetically but if left untreated they might develop various pathological diseases like a Cyst ( a pocket of infected pus) or a Granuloma ( a mass of tissue).

Removal of these pathological structures requires elaborate surgical procedures and at times extraction /removal of the natural tooth.
