I have a sore tooth, what should I do?
Got a sore tooth? It’s important to seek the diagnosis of the problem as soon as possible. Painkillers will provide temporary relief but if there is a more extensive issue it needs to be addressed in order to avoid further treatment.
Fractured or cracked tooth?
If you have a fractured or cracked tooth there are a number of procedures to fix the problem. A crown can effectively fix a cracked tooth. It is important however to act sooner rather than later. Leaving a tooth in a damaged state can lead to more extensive and expensive dental treatment being required.

You need to keep a crown somewhere safe. This way, a dentist can re-attach it as soon and possible avoiding damage to the root.
