My tooth chipped :(

I was eating a Granola bar and I chipped/broke a small piece of my tooth off the top of one of my back molars. Now I have to get it make an appointment to get it fixed, which will probably be two weeks from now. Hopefully he won't tell me I need a crown or anything expensive like that.

Whining complete.

Oh man that sucks. At least it's not somewhere noticeable...I chipped my right front tooth snowboarding and then AGAIN on a rum bottle haha...I'm lucky the guy did a good job bonding it or I'd look like a hillbilly! Maybe you should tell the granola bar company that you chipped a tooth on one of their granola bars and see what happens!

It wasn't even a crunchy granola bar, it was one of the chewy ones. I think my tooth must have already been chipped, and I just broke it off when I ate the granola bar.

I don't think you will need a crown unless that tooth is rotten already. I chipped my bottom front tooth and they were able to just put a filling on it and you can't even tell. I still don't know how they got the filling to match my tooth. Now I am just afraid that if I ever decide to whiten my teeth that the filling doesn't stick out.

Unfortunately the most common reason for teeth breaking under stress is that there is already decay in it. Or an existing large restoration.

Which reminds me, I REALLY should go to a check-up at the dentist, I haven't been in over 3 years! Yikes!

Aww that sucks. I really chipped one of my front teeth a few years ago, and to this day have no idea how it happened, I just realized part of it was missing. They were able to just fill it in with some stuff, and it's been fine since. Good luck!

What do you do for TMJ? My jaw locks up DAILY and it seems to be getting worse. I always have a clicking noise when I open and close my mouth but everynight like late evening, my shit locks up on me. It is very irritating.

I'm not a doctor, but I work at an orthodontist office and we treat LOTS of TMJ patients (myslef included). Patients almost always have relief with getting braces and adjusting their bite, alothough yours sounds a bit more severe and may need oral surgery to help the position of your jaw joint. It probably will get worse until you get it treated, I'm so sorry, having your mouth in any kind of pain sucks!!!!!

Good luck with you chipped tooth too!!!

step 1 for both of you is to get a nightguard.

In my professional opinion, I disagree with the statement that patients will be cured of tmj disorders with orthodontics

My dentist has already recommended the nightguard and most people that I know that have one say they really work. I just don't want to shell out the $300 to get one. Of course if I would STOP buying jeans and such, I could afford one Can you get one in navy blue with some crystals

$300 now is better than thousands of dollars in crowns later

We could be onto something. There are a lot of people who like gold, sparkly teeth why not have a blingy nightguard too

Oww Ash, I hope he's okay. I'm surprised Zeke hasn't chipped anything with all his daredevil stunts.

I'm going to second Pam on the nightguard. I'm no dentist, but I have really bad TMJ problems (that weren't improved at all by 3 years of orthodontics, though my smile is infinitely prettier!). My nightguard is the only thing that saves me from my jaw locking and having constant headaches - if I forget to wear it for a night or two, my head hurts all day, until I put it back in, then I'm fine. My dentist and orthodontist told me that surgery may be in the cards for me down the road, but I'm trying to avoid that if possible.

So, end threadcrap. Sorry! The coles notes version is: Pam's advice kicks ass - get a mouthguard, haha!

are you sure you have TMJ? i had these same symptoms for years, until they finally pulled my wisdom teeth and then i was fine.

i'm sorry you chipped your tooth char. i have a chipped front tooth from when i was a kid. i never got it fixed (they told me i would only need to fix it for cosmetic reasons. but i kinda like it, so i keep it. )
