When you first notice that there is a problem with your teeth, you should ensure that you do not have any further injuries that you may not be aware of. Depending on the way that you received the injury, you may have concussion, neck injuries, or perhaps cuts and scrapes to other parts of your body. If you have any indication this is so, then the ER is your first port of call. After you have been checked over, go to your dentist – preferably, if at all possible, with any parts of your teeth that have been chipped off. Some teeth restoration procedures can re-attach bits of your teeth, so keep them in milk to keep them hydrated. Other tooth restoration treatments include filling in cracks to prevent infection from getting into your tooth, and sometimes even a small filling.
