Hi CK, fortunately I was able to keep it. Since mine had a filling (a REALLY big amalgam one), the tooth ended up getting a partial crown. The fracture was on the inner corner (biting surface), so the roots were okay - at least thats what Im guessing since there wasnt a need for a root canal or anything like that. The crown is a CEREC (all porecelin and milled at the office so you get it the same day). The outer part is natural tooth and the inside and biting surface has the partial crown. You cant even tell it has been worked on - my dentist did an awesome job on it and no pain
The bite problem can be awful. I dealt with that for 5 years. Its amazing what one dentist can miss, and another can fix in seconds. Good luck tomorrow. I hope you'll get good news and that whatever the problem is, that it can be a simple solution to fix it.
