I have broken one of my chewing back tooth .. its called a cusp break ..The filling is still there and there is no pain at all ... I called my dentist but shes away on holiday and i dont trust other dentists from past bad experiences .. she will be back in 4 weeks .. anyone know about cusp breaks ? AND is it ok for me to wait for her to come back as there is no pain ? or will it do harm ?

  • If there is no pain ansd senstivity in that tooth and filling is intact then you can wait for sometime till your dentist comes back. Till that time avoid eating from that side so that filling does not come out and further harm is not done to the tooth. Try to maintain very good oral hygiene. If you feel any pain or sensitivity then you have to visit some other dentist.
