Try to see your dentist as soon as possible so that we can repair the tooth. A tooth will eventually become painful if left without treatment and then may need root treatment or to be removed. If there is a delay to come into us, here are a few suggestions to keep the tooth as comfortable as possible. Avoid eating and drinking near that tooth. Use sensodyne toothpaste or colgate sensitive and rub in some toothpaste with your finger onto the injured tooth A temporary filling kit from the pharmacy can help in the short term but can be very difficult to use.

When we miss spots when we are brushing, which we all do, soft plaque builds up around the necks and inbetween our teeth. Soft Plaque is full of bacteria which our gums hate. Our gums swell up, become red and bleed. If the plaque is there for a while, it will harden and then cannot be removed with the toothbrush or floss. We advise that you see your dentist or hygienist at least every six months to remove this buildup and keep our gums healthy. If the plaque is present for long periods of time, the bone that holds our teeth in position will start to melt away thus causing our teeth to loosen. This is the biggest reason that people loose their teeth over their lifetime.
