Customer Question

I had a molar extracted last Friday. It appeared to be a difficult extraction. While the procedure was being performed my dentist broke the crown on the next tooth. It is sharp and giving me pain. I've also developed an ulcer inside my cheek on that side. Please can you advise me. Thank you.

Dr. David :

you need to go back to the dentist and have them file down that crown or have them remove it if it is sharp and irritating your mouth.

Dr. David :

you should not try to do this on your own.

Dr. David :

you can injure your mouth if you try this.

Dr. David :

can you make an appointment to go back and see that dentist?
