Most often, a broken tooth is a result of a blow to the face or from chomping on especially hard foods. If you happen to break a tooth, don't panic! See a dentist as soon as possible and if the tooth hurts, take whatever you normally take for a headache to ease the pain (as directed-never take more than the label saysÉeven over the counter medicines can be dangerous if taken improperly-even deadly!!!!).Hot or cold foods and drinks can aggravate the tooth so do avoid them. A broken tooth can be scary and even embarrassing! Get to a dentist quickly.
