Chipped Teeth Treatment Options and Prevention

dca-blog_chipped-tooth-sad-illustration

Embarrassing and uncomfortable, a broken or chipped tooth is one of the most common injuries seen by dentists. The extent of damages varies depending on the size of the break and the amount of impact involved. If the nerve of your broken tooth is exposed, it can cause a great amount of pain. A knocked-out tooth can be re-implanted if treated within the first hour or so after the incident. All cases of damaged or chipped teeth, whether mild or serious, should be seen immediately by a dentist. Prompt attention lessens the risk of serious complications like infection and tooth loss.

Can a Chipped Tooth Be Repaired?

If you suffer a broken or chipped tooth, finding an affordable dentist to repair it is a priority. The cost of treatment depends on a variety of factors, including what type of restoration is possible. The following procedures can correct chipped teeth, and some can even be performed in one office visit:

  • Fillings
  • Dental bonding
  • Crowns
  • Veneers
  • Enamel shaping
  • Root canal
  • Tooth extraction

Can Chipped Teeth Be Prevented?

While you can’t prevent accidental trauma to your teeth, there are ways you can protect them. If you have a tendency to grind your teeth at night or you engage in sports, talk to your dentist in Oxon Hill about a having custom mouth guard created. Avoid hard and sticky foods to lessen your chances of suffering chipped teeth. Don’t chew on pens, pencils, or other non-food objects.

Keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy by maintaining excellent oral hygiene and seeing an affordable dentist regularly.
