Trauma can cause teeth to fracture. The use of seatbelts while traveling or mouthguards while playing contact sports can prevent many traumatic dental injuries.
Contact Dr. Doyle immediately as quick attention to a fractured tooth, whether primary (baby) tooth or permanent tooth, can help maintain tooth vitality, alleviate discomfort, and allow for restoration back to natural contour and function.
Portion of fractured tooth can be put in water to help keep it hydrated in hopes it can be bonded back on to the remaining portion of tooth still attached.
