ASK

DENTIST
Dr. John S. Adams, DDS

I got a small chip on one of my teeth recently.
Do I need to do anything about it? Can I leave it be?
It really depends on the chip small chips can require very
little while larger chips (and
especially cracks) can be more
serious and need immediate
dental care. Since you said your
chip is small, the dental work
needed would usually be minor.
Small chips can leave the
broken
area
sharp
and
potentially painful. If that is the
case, the dentist simply smooths
out the edges to make it more
comfortable and keep those
sharp edges from possibly
causing other damage.
If the chip is on a visible
location - like the front teeth dental bonding materials can be

used to fill in the cracked spot
and make your teeth look as
good as new.
I do recommend scheduling an
appointment for your dentist
to take a look and verify that
the chipped tooth won’t cause
any other problems, and that a
quick fix would be sufficient. If
there is more damage than you
realized, it is best to get it
treated as soon as possible.
If you have additional
questions, or need to schedule
an appointment, call your local
dental office.
