Educating patients and ensuring you’re comfort throughout your visit is our number one priority. Broken and Chipped Teeth Broken or chipped teeth may happen for a number of different reasons. Commonly, patients will see us with a broken tooth due to trauma, sporting injury or from grinding/clenching. Even if it isn’t painful, it is very important that you address it as soon as possible to avoid more serious treatment down the track.
