What are some ways to treat a fractured tooth before seeing the dentist?

Follow these steps:: 1. Save any pieces. 2. Rinse the mouth using warm water; rinse any broken pieces. 3. If there's bleeding, apply a piece of gauze or a teabag to the area for about 10 minutes or until the bleeding stops. 4. Apply a cold compress to the outside of the mouth, cheek, or lip near the broken/chipped tooth to keep any swelling down and relieve pain. 5. See your dentist as soon as possible.

Depends: On children (especially) active boys can be common. It depends on the child. Active or not? Siblings or not? Accident prone or not? On adults. Lifestyle would be a huge determinant. Part b would be oral habits and grinding!

No reason to be..: See a local dentist for evaluation and treatment. Modern dentistry is painless. The tooth will not repair itself on its own.
