Broken, Chipped, or Fractured Tooth

If your child has chipped or broken a piece off of his tooth, have him rinse his mouth with warm water, then use a cold compress to reduce swelling if the lip was involved. Try to locate and save the tooth fragment that broke off. Schedule an appointment to have the tooth restored. If the fracture was significant to involve the nerve (you will see pink in the middle of the tooth) call us immediately.
