Hi,
Do lots of warm salt water rinses.  Also gently try a piece of floss around the tooth base.  The salt water will do the most good.  It will help relieve any swelling around the area and the chip should float out.  Use 1/4 tsp of salt per 8oz warm water and swish.

GOOD LUCK and let us know how you are doing.

Best to you,
Gellia
