As you are crunching on a piece of hard candy, you notice something hard in your mouth that does not melt or dissolve. You get a sick feeling as you realize what it is — a piece of broken tooth.
Although the enamel that covers your teeth is the hardest, most mineralized tissue in the body, its strength has limits. Falling, receiving a blow to the face, or biting down on something hard – especially if a tooth already has some decay — can cause a tooth to chip or break. If you have broken or a chipped tooth, do not panic. There are many things a dentist can do to fix it. But you should see a dentist as soon as possible. If you delay treatment, your tooth could be damaged further or become infected, possibly causing you to end up losing the tooth.
