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 disorientation you need to go to a hospital emergency room for evaluation immediately.
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?
- The tooth may be saved with just a filling or a crown.
- Sometimes the nerve is exposed to which you may experience tooth pain and require a root canal treatment.
- Worse case scenarios are when the fracture has extended in such a way that the tooth cannot be saved at all.
