Contact us immediately if your tooth has been completely knocked out of your mouth by an injury. Take the tooth to your dentist as soon as possible. There is a possibility for your tooth to be placed back into your mouth, this procedure is called re-implantation. If the injured tooth is just slightly loose, it may tighten up on its own but should still be assessed by a dentist to ensure the injury is not serious and to minimize negative setbacks or the loss of your tooth.
A chipped tooth without pain requires less urgent and immediate treatment however it should still be examined by a dentist, if you are experiencing pain from your chipped tooth contact us immediately for assessment. Depending on the size of the chip, it can be smoothed or cosmetically corrected. Other options include veneers, crowns and fillings. Ask your dentist to explain these options. If a filling or artificial tooth becomes chipped, it should be replaced.Request Treatment

Cracked and broken teeth should be repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage. Root canal therapy or tooth extraction may be necessary. If a crack affects the enamel and dentin of the tooth, a crown is frequently the best treatment. Keep in mind that cracks are not always visible, even on X-rays. Symptoms may involve pain while chewing and sensitivity to cold and possibly hot foods and liquids, as well as air, which may over time become more pronounced.Request Treatment

You can take some steps to make your teeth less susceptible to cracks. Refrain from eating hard foods or chewing on hard objects such as pens for example. Try to avoid clenching or grinding your teeth, if you clench or grind your teeth while you sleep, talk to your dentist about getting a retainer or other mouth guard to protect your teeth. Wear a mouth guard when playing sports.
Unlike a broken bone, the fracture in a cracked tooth will not heal. In spite of treatment, some cracks may continue to progress and separate, resulting in loss of the tooth. Placement of a crown on a cracked tooth provides maximum protection but does not guarantee success in all cases.
