What to Do if You Break a Tooth
It's crucial that you take action quickly if you experience a tooth break. Here's what you can do immediately if it happens to you:
- Sanitize Your Mouth- Keeping the area clean is the most vital thing you can do after breaking a tooth. Rinse with an antiseptic solution or a warm saltwater solution right away to ensure that you keep the area clear of bacteria that can cause an infection.
- Cover up the Site- Grab hold of some gauze and cover the area so that you'll be less sensitive to the open air. You might be in pain, depending on how severe the break is. Covering the site with gauze will keep your discomfort level down and ward off other bacteria while you seek help.
- Contact an Emergency Dentist- You will need to contact an emergency dentist right away to care for your broken or chipped tooth. Our dentist will help you with the tools and resources available, and he'll use the most beneficial solution. You may decide to have the broken tooth extracted, or you may choose to have us install a replacement tooth.
