Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Do If I Chipped My Tooth?
If you chip your tooth, the first thing you should do is rinse your mouth, then see how deep the chip is. Very minor chips are not emergencies. But if your tooth is noticeably chipped, you should call ConfiDent Smile Studio for emergency dental care right away. Then, come into our office as soon as you can. Depending on how deep the chip is, Dr. Ken may recommend treatment with dental bonding, a dental veneer, or a dental crown. It may also be necessary to perform a root canal if the chip is very deep, and has reached the interior “pulp” of your tooth.
Why Is It Important To Get Immediate Emergency Care?
First, immediate emergency care helps you get out of pain, and back to your normal routine. Getting care right away also helps minimize the risk of future complications. For example, if you get treatment for an infected tooth right away, it’s usually possible to save it with a root canal. But if you wait too long, it may be necessary to extract your tooth, which is a more complex and costly procedure. So don’t wait. If you’re in pain, contact ConfiDent Smile Studio at (214) 888-6726. We offer same-day emergency dentistry for our patients, and Dr. Ken is always standing by to provide the care you need in Dallas.
