What To Do If Tartar Chips Off

Posted on 3/6/2023 by Ranches Family Dental
What To Do If Tartar Chips OffIf tartar chips fall off, it can be frustrating and potentially embarrassing. However, it is essential to remain calm and take the appropriate steps to fix the issue. There are some tips on what to do if tartar chips fall off. First of all, look at the tooth or teeth where the tartar chips have fallen off. You can proceed to the next step if there is no visible damage to the tooth or gums.

However, if there is damage or bleeding, it is essential to see a dentist as soon as possible. You must also use a toothbrush and toothpaste to clean the site where the tartar chips fell off softly and gently. Cleaning the area will help to remove any remaining pieces of tartar and prevent bacteria from growing.

It Is Important That You Visit A Dentist

It is important that you schedule a dental appointment if you are having this issue. It is essential to see a dentist as soon as possible after the tartar chips fall off. The dentist can assess the damage and determine the best course of treatment, which may include a filling, crown, or other procedure.

Furthermore, If the tartar chips fall off due to decay or a cavity, it is essential to protect the tooth until you can see a dentist. You can use a temporary filling material, such as a tooth-colored composite resin, to fill the hole and protect the tooth.
