How to Prevent and Manage Chipped Teeth

Both painful and embarrassing, chipped teeth are the most common dental injury seen by dentists. The structural damage and symptoms caused by a chipped tooth can range from mild to serious, but in all cases, the injury needs immediate attention in order to rule out serious dental problems and prevent complications. A broken or chipped tooth often results in an exposed nerve, which can be extremely painful. If your tooth is completely knocked out, it can often be saved if action is taken quickly. In all cases of tooth injury, it’s important to see your dentist immediately.

Preventing Chipped Teeth

You can’t prevent accidental trauma to your teeth, but 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 Owings Mills 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.

Repairing a Chipped Tooth

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

  • Enamel shaping
  • Bonding
  • Fillings
  • Crowns
  • Veneers
  • Root canal
  • Tooth extraction
