Chipped Teeth – Understanding the Most Common Dental Injury

dca-blog_chipped-tooth-sad-illustration

Broken or chipped teeth are the most common injuries treated by emergency dentists. Having a broken or chipped tooth can be embarrassing, and if the nerve is exposed by the injury, it can also be extremely painful. The amount of structural damage varies from mild to severe and, in some cases, your tooth may need extensive restoration. If your tooth is completely knocked out, it’s essential to see a dentist within an hour or two when the chances of successful re-implantation are high. Regardless of the extent of the damage, all cases of chipped teeth should receive prompt professional evaluation to prevent complications like infection.

How Can My Chipped Tooth Be Repaired?

When you damage your tooth, finding an affordable dentist to repair it is a priority. The cost of treatment depends on a variety of factors, including what type of restoration is possible. Various procedures can correct chipped teeth, and some can even be performed in one office visit. The following treatment options may be available to you.

  • Dental bonding
  • Fillings
  • Enamel shaping
  • Dental crown
  • Dental veneers
  • Root canal
  • Extraction

Can I Prevent Broken and Chipped Teeth?

It’s impossible to prevent accidental trauma to your teeth, but there are other ways you can protect them. If you engage in sports, or you have a tendency to grind your teeth at night, talk to your dentist about a having custom mouth guard created. Avoid hard and sticky foods to lessen your chances of suffering chipped teeth. Don’t chew on pens, pencils, or other non-food objects. Keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy by maintaining excellent oral hygiene and seeing an affordable dentist regularly.
