Chipped tooth, no problem, we can fix it!

Immediate Care for Chipped or Broken Teeth

Understanding Chipped Teeth

Chipping a tooth can be a distressing experience, but it’s important to know that it’s a common dental problem and can happen for various reasons like an accident, biting down on hard food, or even tooth decay.

What we can do

We can reassure you that a chipped tooth does not mean a lost smile. With our expert care and treatments, your tooth can be fully restored back to its original look and function

What to do Before Your Next Appointment

  • Save the fragment or tooth: if you have a piece of the tooth or the entire tooth, handle carefully to avoid further damage. Handle by only touching the top part of the tooth, avoiding the root portion or the severed edge. keep it hydrated in milk at room temperature as the milk will help preserve its natural colour.

  • Avoid disturbing the tooth: try not to touch or disturb the chipped or loose tooth in the jaw. Don't bite down on it or attempt to smooth any rough edges yourself.

  • Manage sensitivity: if the affected area is sensitive, you can use a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth on the affected area. This can help soothe any discomfort.

  • Seek immediate medical attention: if your tooth has been entirely knocked out, it's crucial to seek dental care within 24 hours. However, if you also suspect more severe injuries to the head and neck, please visit a doctor or the A&E department before seeing a dentist.
