Chipped Tooth Repair

Given its remarkable strength, a tooth’s outer layer of enamel is the hardest and most mineralized tissue in the body. Yet, there are times when a tooth can chip or break, especially when falling, receiving a blow to the face or biting down on something hard, as explained by WebMD. This is particularly true if a tooth already has some level of decay. Even so, the good news regarding a chipped tooth is that dentists are well equipped with tools and techniques to repair it.

When it comes to a chipped or broken tooth, perhaps the most important thing to do is to call your dentist right away. Early treatment is needed in most cases to protect the tooth from further damage and infection. What’s more, seeing a dentist quickly provides the best chance of saving the tooth!

Meanwhile, if you are experiencing pain, acetaminophen or an over the counter pain medication is recommended. Rinsing with salt water may also help. Depending on the severity of the chip, there could be a sharp edge of the tooth that is irritating other tissues. In this case, molding a piece of paraffin wax or even sugarless gum around the edge will protect the tongue and/or gums. Finally, avoid biting down on the chipped tooth.

Upon assessing a damaged tooth, a dentist may opt to repair it using a dental filling, dental bonding technique, dental crown, root canal therapy or dental veneers. For instance, if a portion of a front tooth has been chipped, a dentist will likely use dental bonding to recreate the portion that has chipped away. In another example, if a large portion of a tooth has chipped away, exposing the tooth’s pulp, root canal therapy is often the best option. A root canal involves removing the dead or damaged pulp, cleaning the tooth’s canal and sealing it to provide ultimate protection.
