Root Fractures

Root Fractures

A traumatic injury to the tooth may also result in a horizontal root fracture. The location of the fracture determines the long-term health of the tooth. If the fracture is close to the root tip, the chances for success are better. If the fracture does not result in the two pieces of the root being separated, there is also a better chance for success. However, the nearer the fracture is to the chewing surface of the tooth, the poorer the long-term success rate, regardless of whether the pieces are separated.

Sometimes stabilization with a splint is required for a period of time. If the tissue inside the tooth is damaged, root canal treatment may be needed. A medication may be placed in the canal to prepare the fracture site for the eventual root canal filling.

Our Happy Customers

"What can I say about Dr. Sprague, he is simply THE BEST dentist in the Northern Hemisphere!!!!!!!!!!! What other dentist do you know of that can do a Root Canal and Crown within 1.5 hours on the same visit (Instead of going back 2-3 times)? His prices are reasonable and his work is absolutely flawless! He has even fixed crap dental work from two previous root canals done by two bad dentist. I really cant say enough about Doc Sprague! I love this guy and dont actually mind going to the dentist anymore (Outside of the cost of course). I am moving to Nevada in September, and will actually be coming back to Southern CA just to have him do my major dental work, that's how good he is! Thank you Dr. Sprague!!!!!!!"

Vivian

"Dr. Sprague is an amazing dentist. He is extremely caring and his biggest concern is his patients and their needs. He met me at his office after hours to replace a crown. His pricing is very fair and he is truly a genuine caring physician. I would honestly recommend him to care for anyone's dental needs."
