What do I do if I break a tooth?

Top Dentist in Fairfax | Dental ToolsTeeth are exceptionally strong, but they’re not indestructible and may break for several reasons. The first step is for you to see us so we can determine why the tooth broke. Some of the reasons a tooth may break are:

  • Biting down on something hard like nuts, ice, or hard candy
  • Being hit in the face or mouth during sports or other activities
  • Cavities that weaken the tooth structure
  • Large, older amalgam fillings that don't support remaining tooth enamel

If there is no pain or discomfort associated with the break, contact Fairfax & Associates Family Dentistry to make an appointment to have the tooth evaluated as soon as possible. If you’re in pain, a nerve may be involved, and this is a dental emergency. You need to seek treatment immediately to avoid further damage. With most dental emergencies, treating a problem sooner rather than later can help you avoid complications like further irritation and infection.

If you have a broken tooth, please contact our office right away, even if you are not in pain. We’ll make arrangements to see you as soon as possible. If it’s after hours, please call and we’ll let you know what we can do to keep you comfortable until you can get in to see us.
