There are basically two ways to handle a chipped tooth: panic, or call us at Cary Family Dentistry right away, where emergency dental care is among our services.
We can fix a chipped tooth in a jiffy by determining the right solution and expertly preforming the procedure. Decay, missing teeth, braces, even crowns can impact the course of treatment.
If you chip a tooth, it’s important not to panic. It can be frightening to chip a tooth, and we don’t mean to downplay the importance of any trauma to the mouth. If you are not in pain, that’s a good sign; at very least it buys you some time.
But pain is normal. It may be as mild as sensitiveity to cold and heat. The pain could subside on its own in as little as a few hours, because saliva remineralize and insulate the area.
That said, call us right away. An examination is in order so we can determine the exact nature and extent of your issue, and the best way to treat it.
If you have a chipped tooth or any other trauma to the mouth, call us at Cary Family Dental right away. Emergency dentistry is among our many services. We also offer general and family dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
