I have chipped/broken a tooth. What should I do?
First of all, you don’t have to panic. In general, a chipped or broken tooth is not a dental emergency and can be restored. This often is a sign of underlying tooth decay, so please organise an appointment so we can assess your teeth. In the case of severe pain or broken upper front tooth from trauma, you need to visit us immediately because there may be additional problems associated. We will do our best to see you as soon as possible; however there may be a wait depending on our schedule. Until your appointment time, try and keep the tooth as clean as possible and avoid biting hard on that tooth.
