Chipped a tooth? Get a dentist to examine it
Dentist’s should check out chipped teeth.
Anyone who has suffered from a chipped or broken tooth should get a dental profession to examine it, it has been stated.
Softouch Dental Care of North Carolina claimed anyone who has suffered damage to their teeth should make sure they visit a dentist quickly, as the area could harbour bacteria.
It noted filling and dental bonding can help reduce this problem, although for more severe cases the use of porcelain dental veneers could be more appropriate.
According to the practice: “If your chipped tooth is more badly damaged than you originally thought, you may be advised to have that tooth removed. If your tooth requires removal, you can replace it with a dental bridge or a dental implant.”
Elsewhere, Dr Mike Cummings, medical director at the British Medical Acupuncture Society, recently said anyone feeling pain after a cosmetic dentistry procedure may be able to reduce their discomfort through acupuncture.
