Dental Fractures

Fractured permanent teeth should be evaluated as soon as possible for pulpal exposure.  After controlling hemorrhage, exposed healthy pulp tissue is covered with a material such as calcium hydroxide or mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) prior to placing a restoration that seals the tooth from microleakage.  Periodic evaluation of pulpal condition is required.
