Hello I have a wisdom tooth that has an old filling, it got infected a few weeks ago. I had antibiotics and it seemed to settle. Now my tooth felt weird when I had dinner earlier. I ran my tongue on it and it felt a little jagged. I went to look just now, there was a small gap at the front, between the two cusps? I took a toothpick to see if it was a crack and the inner front quarter of the tooth flapped over to the inside of my mouth. It's back in place now but I am panicking, I rang my dentist and they are shut til Monday. I've never had a tooth break and I am really anxious right now. I don't know what to do. Anything I can do to keep the tooth in place until monday morning?
Edit: I also brux and clench in my sleep, will that bit of tooth come off? It's still attached to the gum.

Thanks Gordon, it's still in there, hope it will hang on the night again. I will ring my dentist in the morning, hopefully he can see me soon to at least patch it up until I can be referred to have it out with IV sedation.
