Yesterday i broke my front tooth in half horisontally. Its not really sensitive to heat or cold. to the touch i feel nothing, but when i add more pressure its not really a pain, just weird almost eletric feeling. Im going to the dentist today, but im really worried that i have to get a root canal (because its so painful). Im wondering if i can just have him fill it and cap it or something and it will be alright. Please help me out!!

  • If the fracture line is near the pulp and almost half of the tooth is broken then may be you have to go for root canal treatment. Your dentist will take xay and do clinical exam to see how near the pulp is near the fracture line and then decide whether you need root canal treatment or not otherwise he will just do the composite buildup of the tooth.
