Front Tooth Dcay

Traumatic dental injuries often occur in accidents or sports-related injuries. Chipped Teeth account for the majority of all dental injuries. Dislodged  or  Knocked-Out teeth are examples of less frequent, but more severe injuries. Treatment depends on the type, location and severity of each injury. Any dental injury, even if apparently mild, requires examination by a dentist immediately. Sometimes, neighboring teeth suffer an additional, unnoticed injury that will only be detected by a thorough dental exam.

The only way to stop this problem is to have a filling placed in your tooth. Get to a dentist ASAP before the problem becomes worse. Over time you could end up needing a root canal and crown if the decay progresses.
