How to Save a Damaged Tooth

Very often, unidentified cavities and untreated gum diseases can lead to a damaged tooth. Fortunately, modern dentistry provides several solutions to save a damaged tooth.

Let’s learn more about a few dental procedures used by a Windsor dentist that can help you preserve your natural tooth and its root despite damage.


A filling is considered the safest way to save a damaged tooth. If your tooth is affected by a cavity, your dentist may recommend cleaning up the cavity followed by a filling. Dental fillings are a cost-effective and efficient way to preserve your damaged teeth.

Veneers and Crowns

Another possible solution to saving damaged teeth is the placement of veneers or crowns. Veneers are a cosmetic solution that involves the placement of a customized porcelain shell to cover your damaged tooth.

Crowns are similar to veneers but are used to cover the entire exposed surface of your tooth.

Root Canal

If the cavity has damaged the internal structure of your tooth, your dentist may recommend a root canal, as the procedure helps preserve the tooth root.

Your dentist will remove the infection and the nerve in the root before filling up the damaged space and placing a crown to restore the normal function of your tooth.

Dental Implant

A dental implant is a restorative solution for individuals who want to restore a broken or damaged tooth that also has a damaged tooth root. It is an extensive procedure that involves the replacement of a tooth's root via a dental implant, followed by the placement of a crown which functions as an artificial tooth.
