What to Do if Baby has Chipped a Tooth

- Contact a dentist as soon as possible.
- Store the fragment (if it has been located) in milk or saliva.
- Employ a cold compress to eliminate any perceived discomfort.
"Quick action after the accident can help prevent infection and discomfort, so never ignore your baby’s chipped tooth."
