  • It depends on how much tooth is left. It will either be refilled,capped,or pulled

  • Don't fool around to go. The nerve is highly exposed right now. You don NOT want a root canal, believes me. They may be able to refill it. If the tooth is cracked they will want to crown it.

  • Go or you will end up with an infection. Don't mess with teeth and infection. It leads to a lot of diseases.

  • Same with me...Had all 5 of mine natural but you drag me to the dentist...I have work that is still not finished...I'm a big CHICKEN..A lost filling is usually easy to repair..Is it recent? Clean it out and re-fill it...Easy fix don't worry...
