Blunt Force Trauma

Unfortunately, blunt force trauma is another reason teeth need to be crowned. In this case, the lower left molar was cracked and could not be repaired with a filling.

The Problem: The patient suffered from blunt force trauma that cracked a few teeth.  Although some of the chips in the teeth could be repaired with resin, others like this lower molar required more protection

The Solution: A zirconia crown was placed to ensure the structural integrity of the tooth.
