I Broke My Tooth

Sometimes a tooth can chip or break in an accident or when eating something hard. If this happens, make an appointment to see us as soon as possible.

In the meantime, here are some suggestions for what to do:

  • If it's painful, take an over-the-counter pain reliever
  • If there's a jagged edge, cover it with a piece of sugarless chewing gum or wax paraffin to protect your cheek or tongue
  • Eat soft foods and avoid biting on the broken tooth

At Richlea Dental, we are equipped to help repair broken teeth. From filling in a small chip to something more severe, we can help you.
