One of the most common emergency situations are actually front tooth fractures. It usually happens over the weekend or early Monday morning at breakfast.
This patient was enjoying a granola bar when she heard a crack and felt some movement in her front tooth. She presented to our clinic with her tooth in hand and unfortunately affected her smile – she was worried she would have a permanent gap.
There were a number of options presented to her from A to Z and the benefits and risk of each one even including the short-term and long-term options. Ultimately she wanted to try to save her front tooth for as long as she could, while understanding that it would be very compromised and would only be a short-term solution.
We understand how important a front tooth is for everyone and we were as happy as she was to restore her smile the same day!
