Tooth breaking off or tartar breaking off?
On Sunday, a piece of what looked like a rock fell out of my mouth when i was flossing. bottom front teeth, came from inside, by the tongue.
everyone at work who i showed, asking opinions, said, it really looks like my tooth is falling apart. my boyfriend said no, it's tartar that is breaking off.
my question is...how would i know if it's tartar/calculus or my tooth?
my friend at work said, if it was my tooth, i wouldn't feel anything. i looked in the mirror and it was kinda red on the gum. i can't really see anything, but i do see the hole, near the gum line.
so, i'm scaried. i'm going for my cleaning on april 14th, but i'm really scaried now and don't know what to think?
