The most common reason for broken down teeth is caries or tooth decay. The teeth appear discoloured, stained, broken down and can feel loose. Beneath the surface, the teeth can often be deteriorating and reconstructive treatment may be hard to achieve due to the poor status of the foundation. In such cases, a staged treatment approach by one of our specialists can be achieved. All existing restorations (fillings and crowns) along with tooth decay will be removed and the remaining tooth structure will be assessed. We will try to preserve as many teeth as we can, though in some cases, not all teeth can be salvaged.
