If you have broken teeth or a chipped tooth come see us. Teeth are remarkably strong, but they can chip, crack, or break. This dental emergency can happen from a number of reasons including: biting down on something hard, being hit in the face or mouth, falling, having cavities, and having older fillings that don’t support the remaining tooth structure.
When your tooth chips or breaks, it may not even hurt. Minor tooth fractures usually don’t cause pain, but when larger pieces of tooth break off, it can hurt. If it hurts, this could be a sign that the nerve inside the tooth may be damaged. When the nerve endings in the dentin are exposed to air, you’ll likely feel extreme discomfort.
If you have a broken tooth, contact West Hill Family Dental right away for the relief you need.
