Seek Dental SupportIf you have a chipped or broken tooth, seek dental attention immediately. While you are awaiting your appointment, you should:
- Use over-the-counter painkillers such as Tylenol or ibuprofen. These painkillers will help to reduce inflammation and any pain that you might feel.
- Place an icepack on the side of your face or your cheek. Using a cold compress will also help to reduce inflammation.
- Floss to remove any food that might get caught between your teeth. Food residue can place a ton of pressure on your chipped tooth, so make sure to keep your teeth clean.
- Refrain from chewing foods with a chipped tooth.
