Did you just break your tooth?
How serious is your injury?
If the tooth has fractured as a result of (trauma) causing loss of consciousness, nausea and/or disorientation you need to immediately go to a hospital emergency room for evaluation.
What do you do next?
Unfortunately there is nothing much you can do without the help from your dentist. The dentist will conduct a series of tests to evaluate the health of your tooth.
What to expect?
- If you are lucky enough the tooth can be saved with just a filling or (Crown).
- Sometimes the nerve is involved for which you would require a (root canal treatment).
- Worse case scenarios include, when the fracture has extended in a way the tooth cannot be saved at all.
