Many people discover that their teeth are chipped and immediately start to worry. Relax, because chipped teeth are easily treatable. Today, there are many simple treatments to soothe and improve the dental damage. Your family dentist can help determine the best way to fix the chip.

Causes of a Chipped Tooth

You may be surprised to learn that there are many everyday events that can cause a tooth to chip. No matter what the cause, you should see an affordable dentist right away to fix the chip and prevent the problem from worsening. The usual reasons include:

  • Biting down very hard on food or a solid object
  • Falling down and injuring your mouth
  • An injury or accident from sports or daily activities
  • Suffering trauma to the face, mouth, or jaw
  • Cavities from badly decayed teeth

Top Treatments for Chipped Teeth

While some chips cause little damage or discomfort, others cause major pain and sensitivity. Regardless of the reason for the chip, you need to be examined and treated by an affordable dentist immediately to protect your dental health. The type of treatment advised for chipped teeth will be based on the severity of the problem and degree of dental damage.

  • Small-Sized Chips – Minor chips typically require a family dentist to polish away the chip to smooth out its surface.
  • Medium-Sized Chips – Deeper damage to the tooth will usually require your family dentist to put a crown on the tooth to restore its appearance and prevent it from getting infected.
  • Large-Sized Chips – Severely chipped teeth are likely to have the delicate nerve exposed, which can cause pain and sensitivity. They typically require a root canal and a crown.

Remember that any type of chip can worsen without treatment, so you must see an affordable dentist to repair the damage and prevent later problems.
