omg! please help me! silver cap on tooth came off
my son's cap on his tooth came off tonight. i have NO IDEA what to do. part of the tooth is in the cap and the other part, where they drilled it down is still in his mouth.
i called the dentist, but it just rings. there's no emergency number. we havent eaten dinner yet and i dont want to feed him cuz his teeth will get worse (or what if it gets painful?). its the very back tooth- and he has a cap in front of it (his 2 back teeth on the left side was capped)... so hopefully it cant spread to infect his other teeth. they were really decayed.
i HATE his dentist, but thats the only one that accepts his insurance. when he got the caps- he was screaming and crying. we had to forcefully hold him down and the dentist ended up cutting the sides of his mouth (the inside cheek).. but now we'll have to go through that whole ordeal all over again because of this! grr-- sorry- this was a side vent.
what can i do? is this bad? i have to wait til tomorrow to call them, and HOPEFULLY they will be open since its the day before thanksgiving.
i'm so scared!
