I have missing teeth and wear partial dentures. The tooth next to my front tooth is, or was, a crown. It broke clean off at the gum line. I’m waiting for the oral surgeon to get the rest removed because the entire country is shut down, so I don’t know when that will happen. The front tooth closest to it is super sensitive now, I can feel it on my upper lip and can literally feel the air around it. I’m also hearing weird popping sounds coming from the front tooth area. I’m terrified something is wrong w that tooth now. When I get done w nursing school I’m getting my teeth fixed but need to keep them stable until then. I also have a lot of pain in the gum area where the tooth broke and am using orajel. It was a root canal so whats left of the tooth doesn’t hurt but the gum is very painful. How worried should I be?
