Right upper crushing teeth certre part broke away in bit by bit. What I have to do to close the pit and further damaging the tooth

If the damage is more remove it and replace it, if possible save your natural teeth.
Hi, What you need to do depend upon how much of the tooth is broken down, and how much, and which part, is intact. The treatment may vary from a simple restoration to a Root Canal treatment ( with or without a Post & Core), a crown or extraction. What you need to do, definitely, is to set up an appointment with your dentist, as the earlier you see him/ her, the better the chances of being able to retain it. Also, the longer you wait, the more complex the necessary treatment might end up being.
I can help u on clonical examination, if tooth is not much lost then tooth coloured composite filling can b done.If there is too much lost then tooth colour crown can be placed.
Get it filled or capped based on the amount of tooth lost.
Hello Krishnan, If the pit you are telling is not too deep you can simply fill the tooth. If the pit is too deep you can undergo a procedure called ROOT CANAL THERAPY. In that treatment the dentist will clean the entire tooth from the root, fill the tooth from the root and will replace your tooth with a cap similar to your tooth. Consult a dentist and do the necessary. Thank you.
Fracture of tooth may need rct or extraction if very badly broken . If you are lucky then filling might solve the problem.

It happens beacuse of attrition. Better solution is get a night guard.
If the tooth is less damaged, you can get it restored by tooth coloured filling material and then capping if needed. Or if it is much damaged then root canal treatment is the option followed by capping.
Teeth breaks away only when it is decayed. A sound tooth never breaks unless you bite on something abnormally hard. So visit your dentist & get the filling done. If the damage is very deep, it may need Root canal treatment with capping.
Dear, Bit by bit breaking of teeth may b due to caries or weak enamel. Has to b examined for management accordingly. Thanks n healing regards.
Your tooth mostly is very decayed. It will require root canal treatment followed by post and core as well as a crown to protect the tooth. PLease visit your dentist for treatment,
You can go for a filling if the teeth is not damaged too much.But in case their is so much loss in tooth structure than you might to do root canal treatment followed by capping of the same tooth.
The problem is due to aggresive grinding during chewing which is causing problem and attrition of natural tooth kindly consult your dentist and the crown capped after proper restoration or RCT.
If it is because of cavity and if don't have pain. Go for cap.
