Cracked Tooth

Ouch! 

Chomp on something your tooth didn't like? Or get hit in the mouth with a hockey puck?

If you think you may have cracked a tooth, or if you're holding a piece of your tooth in your hand, follow these steps! 

1. Give us a call at 812-378-2041 to schedule an appointment. Let us know about your emergency and we will make our best effort to see you right away. 

2. If there are tooth fragments that have fallen out, preserve them in a clean container with a moist solution (cold milk, water, saliva), and bring them in to your appointment.

3. Apply a cold pack to your jaw to lessen any pain and swelling.

4. If bleeding, bite down on a gauze pad until bleeding stops.

It is possible to have a cracked tooth and not know it. 

If you have any pain when biting down, or when eating something hot or cold, it's best to get it checked out. 

In order to prevent further damage to the tooth or an infection, it's very important to correct a cracked tooth immediately. 

If you think you may have a cracked tooth, call 812-378-2041 or click below to schedule an appointment!

Everyone was very professional, yet very laid back, making an unpleasant procedure much easier to have done. The follow-up​ call from the doctor showed that he cares about his patients. Stephanie C.
