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.
