A chipped tooth is breaking off just a small piece of tooth enamel. The symptoms are:
1. Tooth pain that comes and goes unpredictably
2. Tooth pain when chewing or relieving biting pressure
3. Tooth pain when exposed to extreme hot or cold
HOW IS CHIPPED TOOTH DIAGNOSED?
Dentists diagnose broken tooth through physical examination. In case you have been in an accident or have a dental cavity that has caused chipping of tooth, the dentist may order for a dental X-ray to assess the extent of damage
HOW IS CHIPPED TOOTH TREATED?
The treatment for a chipped tooth depends largely on the extent of damage. The possible treatment options include use of dental veneers, dental crown or dental filling. If the damage is deeper down, a root canal treatment may become necessary. In the meanwhile, a pain reliever such as acetaminophen can be used along with a salt water mouth rinse to manage the pain.
DID YOU KNOW?
If your tooth is chipped or broken, it is advised to see a dentist soon to avoid further damage to the tooth.
