Welcome to Emergency Dentist Plymouth
Chipping or breaking a tooth as the result of an accident can be both a painful and traumatic experience. However it is vitally important that you see a dentist as soon as possible even if the chip or damage appears minor. If the injury is more severe and you have knocked out a tooth or more than one tooth then it is even more important to act quickly and see a dental professional, as the sooner the injury cab be treated the more likely the tooth/teeth cab be re-implanted, subject to the severity of the injury.
If you do find yourself in this situation it is very important to keep the tooth/teeth clean and avoid touching the root. It is not uncommon to be able to push the tooth back into its gum socket by firmly biting a clean paper towel for up to 30 minutes.
In cases of chipped teeth it may well be possible for the dental practitioner to smooth out the uneven edge and replace the missing chip with a tooth coloured filling, however, if you break a molar it is far more likely to be replaced with a crown.
