Handling Chipped Teeth

Posted .

When you chip a tooth, it’s normal to be freaked out. After all, a chipped tooth really puts a dent in your smile. How do you handle a chipped tooth, immediately after you’ve chipped it and while you’re waiting to see a professional?

That’s where we can help. We’ve seen a lot of chipped teeth, and there are a few things you can do between when you hurt your teeth and when you see us. These may seem simple, but often the simple things in life are the most effective.

Stop the bleeding
If you chip a tooth, there’s likely to be quite a bit of blood involved. One thing that will help the dentist fixing your chipped tooth is if you do what you can to stop any bleeding that may have occurred. All you need to do is apply consistent pressure to the area Dr. Sherif Gabr will have to work in, ensuring that the bleeding has stopped.
