If a piece of tooth breaks, do I have to rush to the dentist with the lost fragment?
It is always better to find the lost tooth fragment, in order to facilitate the reconstruction of the tooth or reattach it if possible.

If a tooth falls out, what should I do before taking it to the dentist?
If a tooth falls out following trauma, it is best to put it in a glass of milk at room temperature or hold it under the tongue and rush to the dentist immediately. Reattachment to the socket can only be carried out if the tooth is not damaged, within 1 hour and a half of its fall.

If a tooth breaks, does it always have to be capped?
It depends on the extent of the fracture. If this only affects the enamel, only one filling can be done. However, if the fracture is more extensive, it is recommended to reconstruct the tooth with a ceramic crown.

If you feel severe tooth pain, could it be pulpitis?
Usually yes, a very intense throbbing pain is typical of this pathology. However, it is always good to pay a visit to the dentist to make a precise diagnosis.

Can a fracture cause the loss of a tooth?
Usually yes, the fracture is a very serious event which in most cases leads to the loss of the tooth. But, it depends on the location and extent of the fracture itself. If the crown fractures, the tooth can be reconstructed using a post-abutment. If the fracture, however, extends vertically to the root, the tooth must be extracted.

Can broken teeth be caused by root canal treatment?
A devitalized tooth is a tooth without its vital component, therefore deprived of cells, nerves and blood vessels. As a result, it is a more fragile tooth and therefore more prone to fractures. To make it more resistant it is preferable to encapsulate the devitalized tooth.

Why can you feel pain on an already devitalized tooth?
You may feel pain if the root canal treatment has not been done properly. If all the canals have not been cleaned and sealed well, the bacteria can return and proliferate, generating a periapical infection. Even if the root canal treatment was done well, however, the bone around the root can be infected by bacteria even before the root canal treatment itself. In this case you may feel pain. The problem can be solved with surgery or extraction.
