Treatment for a chipped tooth is one of the treatments you may receive at PMDC Dental. A chipped tooth can be a tricky thing to deal with, and there are some things you will want to do if you have one.
Perhaps the most important step in dealing with a chipped tooth is to go to your dentist to determine the severity of the chip. If it is just a minor chip, the dentist may be able to fix it with little effort. However, if it is a major chip, or even a crack, you may need more extensive work done – Including maybe a root canal – In order to avoid losing the tooth altogether. Therefore, if you chip your tooth, make an appointment with the dentist as soon as possible so you can get a determination on the severity of the chip and what type of treatment you will need.
There are also things you can do for a chipped tooth in the immediate aftermath of the chip occurring. For starters, you can rinse your mouth with warm water to help get rid of any loose fragments there might be, as well as to help remove any blood that may be in your mouth. If there is bleeding, you may want to find some gauze to apply pressure to the area until the bleeding stops. And while you should get your tooth looked at by the dentist on the day it happens, it might not be possible for you to get in on that exact day. Therefore, you may want to go purchase some dental cement (if you don't have any already) to apply to the chipped tooth. This can help protect your tooth until you can get treatment from the dentist.
There are some things you will want to avoid when it comes to a chipped tooth. If you can hold off on eating at all until you see your dentist, do so. However, if you won't be able to get to the dentist that same day, try to eat soft foods until you can, and make sure to avoid chewing with the chipped tooth. You will also want to avoid heavy physical activity, as it may lead you to damage the tooth even further.
