broken tooth after extraction

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: kemble16  (5 years ago)
My tooth broke after the one next was extracted and the dentist says it was a large filling that came off after two days . It must be extracted also! It is broken off at gum level and am in a lot of pain. I think the dentist broke it!! I have gum disease as well and my other teeth are wobbly. The dentist says he did not break this tooth as the filling came off two days later. What can I do?

First you need to determine how viable the broken tooth is. If it has weak gum support, better to remove it. Occasionally adjacent teeth can break during extractions. Then again, when a tooth is removed, the tooth next to it bears more force, and is more likely to break. It might be your dentist's fault, but then again it may not. But I really doubt your dentist could have ever applied enough force to break the adjacent tooth off at the gemlike unless it was severely decayed to begin with.

Please proceed with extensive dental treatment, trying to save all the teeth that you possibly can. Full dentures are no fun!

Having tooth extraction and/or oral surgery can be an anxiety-inducing situation for many people. However, the reality of the situation is, often times, that without such procedures, long-term oral damage may result in substantial difficulties when performing everyday life-sustaining activities, such as eating and communicating.

Many procedures will require a prescribed oral medication for several days following the surgery. It is important that you utilize these medications as directed to decrease discomfort throughout the healing process. Incorporating ice may also be necessary for added relief.
