What the treatment for a broken teeth?
Doctor Answers 4
It depends on the fracture, if it is too broken you might need extraction and implant, if fracture is not so big and tooth can be saves, you might have it drilled somewhat to have a post and a crown.
thank you for your question.
saving your tooth depends on how much tooth structure you still have left.depending on how much tooth there is, you may be able to place a crown. in some circumstances, you may have to have the root canal treated again. if there is not much left, you may have to remove the tooth and look at other options to replace the tooth.
please go see your dentist and find out your options.
See dentist ASAP
Consult your dentist and he/she can tell you about options for saving or not saving with risks and benefits. Build up and crown will be one option if enough tooth structure is remaining or crown legthening might be needed if fracture is below gum line or close to your tooth bone . You have to consider longterm and short term prognosis in making decision. Best of luck.

It is very hard to say without a proper radiograph, but from what you described, more than likely the tooth is unrestorable. What that means is, it probably can't be saved. Do you have a primary dentist you see?
