I have broken my front tooth. Is that a dental emergency?

An image of a tooth and a first aid kit | Dental Emergencies St. PaulIt is difficult to know when you are experiencing a true dental emergency. St. Paul dentist, Dr. Terry O'Neill never wants you to suffer! When in doubt, simply give us a call and we can guide you through the process of getting the dental care you need to restore your oral health.

If you have broken your front tooth and there is no pain, it is not likely that pain will result soon. If the appearance of the broken tooth is keeping you from going about your normal life then yes, it is an emergency. Call us right away. Tooth pain only results once the nerve becomes involved, though a broken tooth may feel sensitive because the enamel has been damaged. Sensitivity can be annoying and make eating and drinking difficult.

Treating a Broken Tooth

A front tooth is a big part of your smile! Treatment for a broken front tooth may include bonding, a dental crown, or a porcelain veneer depending on the severity of the damage and your desired outcome. Often, front tooth injuries result from sports or activities and can be prevented by wearing an athletic mouth guard during play. Another common cause of a broken front tooth is biting into something you shouldn't. Never use your teeth as tools and bite into anything that is not food.
