What should I do if I break or chip a tooth?

If you chip a tooth and are experiencing sensitivity or pain

  • Place cold pressure to the area to minimise any swelling of the soft structure.
  • Try to find all the bits that are missing and bring them to the dentist, keeping them moist. Some broken bits can be bonded back onto the teeth almost invisibly.
  • Then visit our practice immediately.
  • If there is no pain, then contact our practice to find out if it is necessary to seek dental treatment.
