As long as children are active, they will always be at risk for chipping a tooth. But that doesn’t mean you should worry as a parent.
Chipped teeth are common in children and can generally be fixed by a dentist. If your child has chipped a tooth, don’t panic. We’ll walk you through the steps of how to fix a chipped tooth.
1. Call your child’s dentist immediately.
2. Have your child rinse his or her mouth out with water.
3. Place a cold compress on the area where your child’s mouth was hit to reduce pain and swelling.
4. If you have the tooth fragment, bring it with you to your child’s dentist appointment.
Chipped teeth can be fixed by a trained dentist, but how they are fixed depends on the severity of the chip.
