As soon as a baby’s first teeth appear there exists the danger that they may become chipped due to an accident. This can be worrying for new parents but there are steps that can be taken to minimise the damage. If the missing piece of tooth can be found it should be stored safely as a dentist may be able to reattach it. Rinse the fragment and store in:

– Saliva

– Water

– Milk

A chipped tooth “can allow bacteria to enter the tooth root” which can lead to infections so a prompt consultation with the dentist is extremely important.
