Suddenly, you bite into a rigid piece of bone. You run your tongue along your teeth, and yes, you definitely chipped one of your teeth. It’s really minor, but it’s certainly enough for you, and especially others, to notice. You don’t need anything drastic, just a slight repair, but what would that entail?

It’s nice to get away from the office for a while and just enjoy the park. The expansive view of the coast helps time slow down. You’ve got nowhere to be and you’re not in a rush. As you’re wandering around, gazing up at the trees, you’re not looking where you’re walking. Your foot lands awkwardly on a rock and you go tumbling down without enough time to brace yourself with your hands. As you get up and dust yourself off, your tongue feels a canyon between your front teeth. One of them has been knocked out and you’re bleeding. What do you do in this situation? Dr. Howard, an emergency dentist in San Marcos, talks about what you can do in this type of situation.
