What Should I Do
If My Child’s Tooth Is Cracked, Chipped, or Broken?
If your child’s tooth is cracked, chipped, or broken, be sure to make an appointment with Sea of Smiles Pediatric Dentistry as soon as you can. If there is any kind of noticeable damage to your child’s tooth, it must be checked out by a pediatric dentist.
This is because damage to your child’s tooth, even if it seems minor, can weaken the enamel and expose the inside of the tooth to oral bacteria. This, in turn, can result in a serious tooth infection.
If your child’s tooth appears to be cracked, chipped, or damaged in any way, don’t wait. Contact one of our offices in Yardley, Bensalem, Warrington, or Glenside to schedule an emergency appointment, and visit our team ASAP to get the proper restorative treatment.
The sooner you get help, the sooner your child can get relief from the pain and discomfort of a damaged tooth, and the lower the risk is that your child will develop further complications like an infected tooth.
