For those of you who chip their teeth but do not experience any pain, that is more than enough of a reason to go and see your dentist. Pain is not always the only symptom that you need to experience in order to see a dentist, and when you have chipped a tooth it is all too easy to get dirt and bacteria into the tooth itself, damaging it from the inside out. It may even be possible at an early stage to have the chip replaced or cosmetically improved, so the sooner that you go and see a dentist, the better. The same thing goes for a broken or cracked tooth; it may not feel like an emergency to you, but the sooner that you can ensure that there is not a deeper problem, the better.
Whether a tooth is loose or fallen out, cracked or chipped, or you just feel as though something is not right – it is always better go to a dentist and hear that nothing is wrong than wait it out and then face real problems.
