This is one of the most worrying scenarios to the parent and a common reason for emergency visit to the dentist.
When Child Chips, Breaks, or Knocks Out a Tooth:
With any injury to your child’s mouth, you should contact your dentist immediately. The dentist will want to examine the affected area and determine the appropriate treatment.
If your child is in pain from a broken, cracked, or chipped tooth, you should visit the dentist immediately. You may want to give an over-the-counter pain reliever to your child until his/her appointment. If possible, keep any part of the tooth that has broken off and take this with you to the dentist
