I regret that there isn't one answer to your question. The prognosis would depend upon the type of fracture, whether it involved the pulp cavity, and whether or not the tooth had become unstable in its socket. We recommend that fractured teeth be X-rayed as soon as possible. Prompt endodonic work can save many fractured teeth. Once the pulp cavity is invaded, however, more involved work such as root canals or extractions may be necessary. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish. I have to leave my computer for the night but promise to reply in the norning if need be.
