Broken Baby Tooth


A chipped tooth into enamel or dentin is common. 

Be sure to look for nerve exposure (appearance of a red dot).

If no nerve exposure:

Keep the tooth clean to prevent plaque build-up.  Smearing fluoride toothpaste onto exposed dentin can help to decrease sensitivity.  Schedule a visit with us; typical treatment involves smoothing any sharp areas or occasional application of desensitizing medication.  White fillings are an option – but are rarely recommended for baby tooth depending on the size/ location.

Nerve exposure noted:

For baby teeth, if the nerve is exposed, please call us to schedule a visit ASAP.
