What should I do if I’ve chipped or cracked a tooth?

Not only is it annoying to have chipped or cracked teeth, but it can also lead to dangerous dental conditions like infection. When you or a loved one chip or crack a tooth and do not know what to do, please watch this video by our Calgary dentist Dr. Arash Ravanbakhsh, and then give us a call to set up an appointment.

You might be asking, “What should I do if I’ve chipped or cracked a tooth?” The first thing you should do is give us a call and we’ll triage you based on the situation.

If it’s a small chip, it’s not an emergency. You can get to it at a later time. If it’s a big chip where the nerve is exposed, we need to get you in right away to prevent infection. If it’s a superficial crack, it’s okay to deal with it at a later time. If it’s really deep, it might need emergency dental care. Give us a call and we’ll triage you and give you the best care that you need.

We want to see you right away if you have a chipped or cracked tooth especially if there is extreme pain that is not going away with pain medication. Give us a call for a same-day appointment if you have chipped or cracked teeth. Let us help you restore your smile and preserve your natural teeth.
