|A letter on coronavirus awareness from Cameo Dental Specialists|
|•||A crack or fracture that extends below the gum line. Typically, a crack, chip or fracture can be restored with a crown. However, if the damage is below the gum line, a crown cannot protect the tooth. Bacteria can enter from below the gums, leading to a serious infection.
|•||Severe tooth decay. In this situation, a filling would be more likely to further damage the tooth than protect it.
|•||Your tooth is completely broken or shattered.
|•||You have an impacted tooth. An impacted tooth is one that cannot properly erupt through the gums. Your wisdom teeth are the most likely to become impacted, followed by the maxillary canines. Any tooth, however, can face this issue.
|•||Overcrowding. Orthodontic treatment is used to straighten misaligned teeth. However, if your mouth is overcrowded, a tooth or two may need to be extracted first to make room.|
|•||Impacted wisdom teeth.
|•||Advanced gum disease.
|•||Needing orthodontic treatment to correct overcrowding.|
