Pediatric dentist tip of the day: Broken or Chipped Tooth Contact your pediatric dentist immediately. You can save the tooth if you get your child help fast, which can prevent infection and reduce the need for extensive dental treatment. Rinse the mouth with water and apply cold compresses to reduce swelling. If possible, locate and save any broken tooth fragments and bring them with you to the dentist.
