What to Do if You Damage a Tooth
If you are not experiencing pain after chipping or breaking a tooth, then the chip is likely on the surface. We do not generally re-attach the chipped piece, so there is no need to save it. However, it is important for you to schedule an appointment as soon as possible because the chip has likely exposed the inner layer of your tooth, leaving you susceptible to infection. The common solution to chipped teeth is through a process called bonding, which helps prevent further damage and avoid tooth decay.
If your permanent tooth has been knocked out completely:
- Call our emergency line for step-by-step instructions
- Pick up the tooth by the crown (top)
- Rinse with water if it's dirty
- If possible, put the tooth in the socket until you can be seen
- If you can't put your tooth in the socket, put it in a glass of milk
- Stop by our office (within 30 min) after your accident
