Chipped Tooth Treatment
Causes of A Chipped Tooth
Chewing hard pieces of food can lead to a chipped tooth. Utilizing your teeth as a tool to open certain objects can be deteriorating to your dental health. Tooth decay can cause a broken tooth which may or may not cause pain. You can prevent cavities (tooth decay) by maintaining proper dental care. Keeping your teeth as healthy as possible by avoiding all types of bad habits can save you time and money. The pain that comes when your teeth become chipped or damaged is unbearable. You want to prevent going through that pain by using your teeth what they were intended to be used for. Although, sometimes it may happen that a person accidentally chews a piece of hard candy or any other food which can break their tooth. Other accidental causes such as fall to the floor can lead to a chipped tooth as well. Whether you put yourself in the situation, or it was an accidental cause, there is a treatment! Our Tooth Repair Dentist provides all patients with treatment options to a chipped tooth.
When To Visit The Dentist
If your tooth ever breaks, you must visit the dentist immediately. A chipped tooth that is not treated can lead to an infection, or become more damaged than it already is. The treatment will depend on how badly the tooth was broken. A tooth with a minor fracture does not require repair but visiting a dentist is encouraged. However, if the tooth was broken to the point that it hit the nerve then it will require a specific treatment according to how damaged the tooth was.
