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 of 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 a 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.
