Three years ago, I chipped my upper front tooth. I did not have enough money to have it checked by the dentist then so I just gave a special care to that tooth. I brushed three times a day, flossed regularly, got rid of sugar and anything sweet and no coffee at all. I also made sure that no food is trapped into the gap. I rinsed with salt water. However, despite the extra care I've done to my teeth, the chipped tooth has started to give me trouble. It began to become painful. I noticed that the is now dark brown in color and there is a thin black spot of dirt. Will it affect my other teeth? Can this tooth be saved? I am afraid the dentist will have to pull this out.
Your answers are greatly appreciated and best regards.:-)
