If you have chipped or broken a tooth as a result of an accident or an injury, it can be a traumatic experience. It is very important that you see a dentist immediately, even if the tooth is just slightly chipped.
It is very important that you keep the knocked out tooth clean and avoid handling it by the root. If you have a chipped tooth then your dentist may be able to smooth down the uneven edge and replace the missing part with a tooth-coloured filling.
If you break a back molar then this may have to be replaced with a crown. If you require an emergency dental treatment, you should ask to see a dentist as soon as possible. At our practice we offer same day service for all dental emergencies from toothache to lost or broken crowns, chipped teeth and fillings to abscesses, trauma, avulsed teeth and a swollen face.
We also provide ACC quotes for dental injuries.
