What Can You Do for a Knocked-Out Tooth?

What Should I Do About a Broken or Chipped Tooth?
You might think a chipped tooth can wait indefinitely, but we can potentially reattach some of the tooth if you see us right away. Also, we need to check the nerves of the tooth for exposure and damage. So please make an appointment immediately.
