i have recently had a fall and my front tooth has broken off
Q. I have recently had a fall and smashed my face againt a wall, part of my front tooth has broken off which has now left the remainder of my tooth with a sharp point and looks awful. If i go to the detist will they be able to treat me right away, and what is the procedure to repair a chipped tooth. Is there any pain involved as i have a great fear of going to the dentists and avoid needles at all costs. And any idea of what the price would be.
A. The first thing is to have a proper asessment with a dentist – this would also need an Xray to check on what is happening below the tooth. Following this your options for treatment are a simple filling, a veneer, a crown or ………..if the tooth is not savable a denture, a bridge or an implant. The costs you will need to discuss with your dentist
