I had a horrible experience tonight. I was biting my nails and I broke a tooth! I really have no tooth issues- my teeth are straight and strong and I haven't had a cavity in ages. However, I have this one tooth that has always been a problem- it's the only one. I had two cavities in in high school. In college, I had to have a root canal in it and about three years ago, I chipped it. All of those were repaired but it has always just been a problem. I dunno- maybe it just never developed right or was lacking something. At any rate, it really broke this time. It's pretty much just the base (which is mortifying and I will not be leaving the house tomorrow!) Anyway, I know this tooth has been through a lot and I am not surprised that it failed. My question is, I am going to the dentist hoepfully monday to have it repaired (I think they do a crown for something like this? Not sure, I have never had one before). With local anesthetic and stuff, do I need to let the dentist know anything?
Thanks and sorry if its a dumb question.
