  • From your sympyoms it looks like that the broken tooth is infected and that is why you are having the copper taste in the mouth. This broken tooth is also hurting your tongue as its sharp edges must be causing trauma. Visit your dentist and get the X-ray done to find out whethwer this tooth can be saved or not. If it can be saved then go for the root canal treatment and the crown and if it can not be saved then get it pulled out and go for the replacement which can be an implant or the fixed bridge.
