A chipped tooth is damage to teeth, which are not moved from their original position. A chipped tooth is usually caused by trauma -- from biting down on something hard to receiving a blow to the face. Tooth decay can also weaken a tooth, eventually causing it to break. Sometimes a chipped tooth will cause a toothache or jaw pain; other times it may lead to tooth sensitivity.
HOW IS CHIPPED TOOTH DIAGNOSED?
A chipped tooth due to injury requires immediate medical attention. The dentist will perform a physical examination along with details of the injury to diagnose the problem. He may suggest X-ray for further diagnosis of the problem.
HOW IS CHIPPED TOOTH TREATED?
The treatment for chipped tooth is based on the severity of the tooth. A tooth filling is used to fix the outer part of the tooth (the enamel). A dental filling may be used for the enamel and inner layer of the tooth (dentin), but often a dental crown is necessary in these cases. The most serious ones are those that damage a tooth's nerve. These usually require a root canal to remove the damaged nerve and blood vessels.
