Ways of Treating a Peg Tooth
Posted on 6/23/2018 by Doctor Haigney
Do you have a peg tooth, also known as a peg incisor? If so, then you may be wondering what can be done to help treat it. It is often a cosmetic problem before it is a functional problem, but they can be both. Many people come to us to get help treating this type of tooth. It is slightly smaller than the surrounding teeth, which makes treating it a priority to those who want their smile looking its best. Here are a few of the top ways you can treat a peg tooth. Helping You Get Past a Peg ToothThere are a few things you can do to cover a peg tooth. This can include veneers if the tooth is close to the same size as the surrounding teeth, or crowns that cover the tooth entirely. You can also have the gums at the base of the tooth lengthened, which gives your tooth the appearance of being longer. For some, just fixing the aesthetics is all they need. If that is not enough to help treat the tooth, you can also have bonding done to help the tooth look and function better. In extreme cases where the tooth is simply causing pain or damaging the surrounding teeth, you can also opt to have the peg tooth removed and an implant put in your mouth in its place. This is not a common treatment, but it can be done if it also relieves pain. Peg teeth are not always something that requires treatment. However, when they do, all aspects of the treatment must be considered. You want your mouth to look great, function as it should, and not hurt when all is said and done. That is what we can do to help treat your peg tooth. Call us today to find out more....
