Dental injuries can be very different – fractures of a tooth crown with / without nerve involvement, fractures of a tooth root, a tooth bruise, etc.
What to do if a tooth crown fracture occurred?
The best option is to keep a piece of broken tooth, as it may be able to stick it back (Remember, there is nothing better than your tooth).
It is important to go to the dentist immediately (within 24 hours) to assess the complexity of the dental injury. The dentist will assess whether the tooth nerve is damaged and will take an X-ray to examine the root of the tooth.
If there is an uncomplicated fracture of the crown, it will be possible to restore it by gluing the broken tooth piece back in place. If a broken piece of tooth could not be found, then the problem can be solved with cosmetic tooth filling.
