Dr. Cohen gives advice on what you should do if you broke a tooth.
If you find yourself with a broken tooth, it is best to get to a dentist as quickly as
possible. The faster you get to a dentist, the less problems you will have. Commonly if
you have a broken tooth, it needs to be fixed with a filling or a crown. If you get to the
dentist as quick as possible, you can avoid problems like needing a root canal or gum
surgery associated with the problem.
