If a tooth is loose or knocked out, your dentist will see if the tooth can be re-implanted or re-fixed.
X-rays might need be taken to investigate the severity of your injury and determine if there are any pieces of broken tooth left in your gum.
In the case of a chipped tooth, the severity and location of the chip will determine what treatment your dentist recommends. Treatment could range from building the tooth up with a filling, to more extensive treatment such as root canal, a crown or both.
