Cracked or Fractured Teeth

Cracked or Broken TeethTeeth are amazingly strong, but even strong teeth can chip, crack or break. You may fall, be hit in the mouth or face, or bite into something hard. If this happens, it is important to get to your dentist right away, saving the broken part of the tooth if possible. The longer you wait, the greater the risk of permanent nerve damage to the tooth. But what do you do when your tooth breaks and you can't get to the dentist right away?

Here are some guidelines to carry you through until you can get in to see your dentist.
•  Rinse your mouth with warm water
•  Apply pressure for about 10 minutes on any area that is bleeding
•  Apply a cold pack to the cheek or lip over the broken tooth, helping to reduce swelling
•  Cover the part of the tooth that is left in your mouth with temporary dental cement found at the drugstore
•  Take an over-the-counter pain reliever

It's important that you call to schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible. Give us a call at (530) 272-5522 and we will be happy to help.
