Iam 8ys fall down and broken my front tooth, cracked with a ded spot appears at the remaining part. went for a doc next day who filled the tooth back. now i have another doctor say it may be an exposed nerve and need a ECT. but lave no pain since it was broken 10 days back.important to know that i drink cold/hot but no pain or symptoms so far! Should i go for RCT, to remove the nerve or wait?? Thanks

  • RCT case can't be diagnosed by mere seeing. You need to have an Xray done for that. Sometimes after tooth fracture the tooth becomes dead due to which all senses are lost and thus to save the tooth from furhter breakage RCT is preferred and after that crowning is compulsory. So, you should go with the dentist as he might have evaluated the case carefully and if you have a scanned Xray copy then mail them.
