Cracked Tooth Issues - July 25th 2012, 10:55 PM

A few months ago I cracked a tooth and left it as I'm terrified of the denist.

My normal one is a complete jerk whose given me fillings and they've caused me nothing but grief.

The damaged tooth (given a filling) was causing me pain but I lived with it and it eased off, but now its cracked across the tooth and I'm scared I'm going to lose the tooth and be left with a broken smile.

I'm still battling depression and there's a few other issues in my life that are affecting me and the tooth issue will just throw me overboard. I'm seeing an emergency dentist tomorrow.

Is there anything I can do to stop further damage? And will I have to have the tooth removed? Can that be avoided? I'm scared witless.

Where is the tooth? If it is in the back of the mouth, then you wouldn't really have a broken smile, but if it is in the front, then you would. How badly is the tooth cracked? Is it cracked only a little bit? If so, then I would still get it checked by the dentist and they will assess it and see what to do next, but more than likely, it will probably be removed. If it is cracked severely, then it would have to be removed as soon as possible. There really is no way to avoid this, sorry.

You can't really stop it from any further damage. There is one thing that you can do. Don't eat anything on the side where he cracked tooth is. You don't want food to get in the crack and cause an infection, if it's possible for that to happen.

I hope this helps you.

It managed to scare me even more actually!! It's kinda midway. A small smile hides the tooth.

I really hate my dentist. If he had left it alone to begin with it wouldn't be causing me grief.

I know you hate the dentist, but I think you should get it checked out and get their input about what to do with the tooth.

That, and perhaps find another dentist! You should always be comfortable with who you are seeing, if still in doubt about their advice or action plan, seek a second opinion.

I'm going to. My normal dentist couldn't fit me in so I'm waiting on another one. In the meantime my tooth has actually repaired itself as little!! Scary!

You definitely don't want to wait when it comes to cracked teeth. One of my molars had a small crack in it near my gumline, but I ignored it because I don't have dental insurance or a billion dollars to get it fixed (Get it together America >.>) So it got worse and worse until one day I was eating and my tooth literally broke in half, and I was holding a big chunk of it in my hand. I now have a big...hole...where my tooth used to be.

I chiped my tooth and eventually the filled it or whatever now half is fake well it has a crack in the real part now I just filled it with the wax for braces till I like I had to for my chippped tooth. I would recommend seeing a dentist soon because mine cause a bacterial infection and I had to have a hole drilled so the stuff could come out.


feel free to PM me...

Always keep a smile on your face and Lots of love in you heart! <3
