What to do if you have a fractured or broken tooth?

What to do if you have a fractured or broken tooth?

First, check your tooth to assess the level of damage. Often, chipping or light cracking, which are typically minor and require minimal treatment, if any, can be confused with more serious tooth damage. But should you find that the crack looks deep, or your tooth has broken into pieces, you may be at risk for an infection and tooth loss. Using warm water, rinse the area clean, and apply a cold compress if you notice any facial swelling. See your dentist as soon as you can.
