My tooth chipped which led me to go to the dentist and I was told I needed a root canal. I'm really scared so I've been putting it off. It's chipped a couple of times since then. I finally found a really nice dentist who is referring me to a specialist. I can't get an appointment with her for two weeks and that's for an evaluation (I'd just like to meet her to feel comfortable). I woke up this morning and more had chipped. About 1/4 of my tooth is gone. When my current dentist examined my tooth I told her it might chip and she was unconcerned about that happening because it had to have a root canal and crown anyway. Is this true and can it chip too much that they wont be able to do the root canal? Also a friend of mine had a root canal and hers broke during the root canal. What should I do? It doesn't hurt at all. Thanks for your time.
