Chips Happen! Sometimes it is caused by everyday wear and tear, other times it’s a sudden trauma. It can be uncomfortable or downright painful, but it’s important to seek emergency dental attention right away.
Your tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body. The enamel is the first and most important line of defense against tooth decay and plaque, and it helps protect the tooth from injury. However, we put our teeth through tons of abuse every day by chewing (not to mention bad habits such as chewing on pencils and other objects).
Chipped teeth can be embarrassing, but don’t worry! Contact Emergency Dental Care USA in Lynnwood, WA, your local urgent care dentist, as soon as possible so that we can help save your smile and return it to proper function.
