Chipped Tooth in St. Thomas, ON
A chipped tooth can easily ruin a smile but it is an easy fix!
Chipping a tooth is actually easier than it sounds. Chipped teeth can occur from something as violent as head trauma or something as innocent as biting into a piece of food. Chipped teeth can be dangerous and potentially hazardous to your oral health so the sooner you contact your dentist the better.
Treating a Chipped Tooth
As soon as a tooth is chipped, assess the damage and stop the bleeding by applying gauze or rinsing with warm salt water. If you need to take over the counter medication to relieve pain do not apply it directly to the affected area. Please contact us to set up an emergency appointment as soon as possible. At the appointment your dentist will evaluate the injury and explain a possible treatment plan. Treatment options include dental bonding or dental crowns.
Our job is to show you what we see in your mouth, educate you on your options, and let you make the best decision for yourself. We never push unnecessary treatments and always give you options.
