Hello doctor,

I believe I chipped my molar, but am just making sure that it is just a small chip. The molar was already calcified and has been sealed as a result of that. There is no sensitivity, pain, or any symptoms. Wondering if I would get it sealed again or just something to be cautious about. I practice good hygiene and visit the dentist every six months and have never had a cavity.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I checked the pictures (attachment removed to protect patient identity). The broken part seems to be a small part in the enamel layer, you do not have any pain or symptoms, so I believe this tooth is fine and it can be restored with composite filling to prevent any cavity forming over there. Also, we can use the help of periapical X-ray for that tooth just to make sure everything is alright. You can make an appointment with your dentist to make a filling for that tooth. Also, congratulations, keep on your good hygiene and regular checkups.


Investigations to be done:

Periapical X-ray.
