Chipped teeth happen but they should be treated

Fractured or chipped teeth are fairly common occurrences. Fractures/chips often occur as a result of trauma or due to weakness in the tooth. If your child fractures their tooth, you should contact us for an appointment to evaluate the extent of the injury. When fractured, most teeth can be restored using a white filling material. If a tooth is fractured exposing the nerve, we sometimes place a medicine over the exposed area to help promote the recovery and healing of the nerve tissue.
