Dentist Buckhead: Don’t Take Chances with Chipped Teeth

Leave a comment

chipped toothIn the movies, a simple pratfall usually gets a big laugh, and a resulting chipped tooth can have the audience rolling in the aisles.  But in real life, a chipped tooth due to trauma is no laughing matter.  Besides possible pain and damage, a chipped tooth can cause a lot of embarrassment.

If you have a chipped tooth, you’re not alone!  In fact, chipped teeth are the most common dental injury today.  While a chipped tooth can range in terms of size and damage, any type of dental trauma deserves immediate attention.  Although a small chip will most likely not cause pain, you should contact a dentist to make sure there is no other damage to the tooth’s structure.  A dentist will be able to rule out accompanying cracks or internal dental problems when examining your chipped tooth.

More significant damage should definitely not be ignored!  A broken tooth may result in an exposed nerve, which can cause a great deal of pain. A completely knocked-out tooth can actually be saved if you act quickly.  Regardless of your dental emergency, contact your dentist right away.
