I was enjoying a nice small meal, with 10 tortilla chips as a reward for good eating this week.
Then, I thought that I had a piece of a chip stuck between my tooth and gums.
Nope. I broke off the inside edge of the right bottom rear tooth, right down to the gum line. The old filling is holding the rest of the tooth in place.
And, of course, I do not have a regular dentist. Yeah, I know. Shame on me. So, I went online and found an emergency dentist - who cannot see me until 11 am on MONDAY!!
So, the tooth will not be saved.I really do not think it can be saved,given the large filling from . . . 1977 that is holding the tooth together at this point.
So, what to do? Take aspirin until them? Use some duct tape to hold it together until then.
Can I eat ANYTHING at all with a broken tooth?
