Hi, I am 22 years old and I've got several problems with my teeth. I just had an extraction done on my bottom left(my left) second molar. I just was adding that for perspective. The dentist I went to(I have no insurance whatsoever, paid 85 dollars to get the extraction done) was pushing inside my mouth to get at the molar to extract; while he was doing this he pushed on my two front teeth. The extraction went well and everything. I am home now and watching the site closely. I notice now that my right front tooth has this crack in it where if I press on the tooth a crack opens and goes horizontally across the middle of the tooth. There is not any pain or anything but it is freaking me out. The dentist told me before hand that it probably was not worth saving. My question is this: I go to a charity based dentist who only does fillings, extractions, and cleaning. Is there any way he can save this tooth? I am incredibly scared I will look terrible without one of my front teeth. Thank you for reading.
