Hi,

Thanks for using ' Just Answer ' and i would be glad to assist you.

The healing depends on the amount of damage to the tooth. In case, there is no damage to the tooth and only the impact of the force is there, it would go within a day or two with analgesic. However, in case if the outer layer of the tooth ( enamel ) is involved, the soreness would go if the filling is done.But, if the pulp is involved, RCT ( Root Canal Therapy ) is required.

I would suggest you to visit your dentist at the earliest as the further damage to the tooth and spread of active infection could be prevented.

Till the time you fix an appointment, you could take Amoxicillin 500 mg twice daily for 3 days and Ibuprofen 400 mg thrice daily for 3 days.You could go in for antimicrobial mouth rinses such as Betadine ( 1/1 ) or Chlorhexidine.If possible, get it checked in an emergency room.

Any Further Questions, Revert and i would be glad to Answer.

Kindly Accept the Solution,if 100% Satisfied from my response.

Bonuses would be Appreciated.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
