What Should I Do If I Have A Broken Or Chipped Tooth?

A cracked, chipped, or broken tooth can be painful and expose sensitive nerves that can become infected. While you should see a dentist in Las Vegas as soon as possible, there are some steps you can take to protect your oral health:

1. Rinse Your Mouth

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends rinsing your mouth out immediately with warm water. This can help remove dirt or food debris that could lead to an infection or other issues. Gently swish the water around your mouth to clean the affected area.

2. Apply a Cold Compress

In many cases, fractured teeth are caused by a fall or sudden impact, which can cause pain and swelling in that area. Applying a cold compress to your mouth will help reduce swelling and numb the pain. If you don’t have a cold compress, wrap a bag of ice in a towel and carefully hold it to your face.

3. Contact Your Dentist Immediately

Contact a Las Vegas dentist who offers emergency dental care as soon as possible. It’s important to get ahead of the damage to prevent further injury, pain, or infection. Absolute Dental offers emergency treatment for everything from minor chips to severe fractures.

What Emergency Dental Care Do I Need For A Fractured Tooth?

Depending on the severity of the fracture, different dental services can treat chipped or broken teeth. Our team will assess the damage and recommend treatment, which may include the following:

Dental Filling

A durable dental filling can often fix a broken or chipped tooth. The filling materials strengthen the damaged tooth and protect the sensitive inner tissue. This procedure is done in the dental office with local anesthesia.

Root Canal

You will likely need a root canal if the fracture or break reaches the tooth’s pulp or affects the nerves. Our dentists use a gentle approach to clear away infected tissue and save your tooth from further damage.

Dental Crown

Your dentist may also recommend a dental crown to cap your damaged tooth for extra strength and protection. It will also improve the appearance of a chipped or broken tooth and restore your smile to what it was.

Oral Surgery

Oral surgery, such as a tooth extraction, may be necessary if the tooth is badly damaged by a severe fracture. However, your dentist will do everything to save the tooth and repair the break with the least invasive procedures.

Broken/Chipped Tooth FAQ

Yes, a chipped or broken tooth is considered a dental emergency and requires immediate treatment. Harmful bacteria can enter the fracture and cause an infection, pain, and other issues. Also, jagged edges can injure other parts of your mouth if left untreated.

What your dental insurance covers will depend on your policy. If you don’t have insurance coverage, Absolute Dental has special offers, flexible payment options, and Smile Saver membership discounts for cash-paying patients.

While dental wax may provide temporary pain relief for a chipped or broken tooth, you must see a dentist right away. Ask your dentist about dental wax until you can make it to the office for treatment.
