Visit the dentist or wait?
Tooth pain, discomfort, visible tooth decay, concern: we all need to see a dentist when such situations arise. In some cases, it is possible to wait until the next follow-up appointment while in other circumstances, an immediate consultation is necessary.
Find the best dentist
Whether you feel pain or not, a fracture should be assessed by a dentist as soon as possible. Ideally, the consultation takes place immediately after the accident. It is strongly recommended to bring the fragment of the broken tooth (if you find it) and keep it in your mouth, in milk or in plastic wrap (Saran Wrap) until the dentist arrives.
In addition to providing information on the cause of the incident and the condition of the tooth, the fragment could possibly allow the dentist to reconstruct the tooth by gluing it back together with adhesive and composite. If this is not possible, your dentist can use this as a guide to reconstruct the original shape of your tooth as closely as possible.
