Chipped a tooth?!

Question: Chipped a tooth!?
ok so !.!.!. i feel so dumb !.!.!.but i have my tongue pierced and i was eating some chips and bit down on the tongue stud and now i have a chipped tooth its the second to last molar on my bottom right jawline !.!.!. it doesn't hurt or anything but its quite jagged!. i have a few questions !.!.!. and i would prefer educated answers (hopefully from people in the dental profession)!.

how soon do i need to get to the dentist to have this fixed!?

will they have to give me any kind of anesthetic!? (im terrified of needles)

what exactly does the process entail!?

please and thank youWww@Answer-Health@Com

This is specifically why I think people should refrain from mouth piercings of any kind!. But, since this happened, you don't need a lecture, you need answers!.

You need to get to the dentist as soon as possible to have he or she look at it!. You will most likely need an x-ray to determine the extent of the damage, although dentists can tell quite a bit just by looking at the tooth itself!. Whether you need anesthetic or not will depend on what the dentist finds and what (s)he needs to do!. But you DO need to get to a dentist to get that tooth fixed!. Since you are not in pain, it is not considered a total emergency, but I would get it done within the week!.

Don't be afraid of the needles!. It is not that bad!. And getting the anesthetic placed in your mouth with a needle is WAY better than having dental work done without anesthetic!. I hope this helps!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

It should be fixed right away if you are going to cut your tongue on it!.

If it is just on top of the tooth, you should not even need a shot!.!.!.!.just have it smoothed and be out of there!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

you will be fine they will smooth it out just like if you break a nail and have to buff em it wont hurt it willl even feel betterWww@Answer-Health@Com
