Hit Tooth, Does It Turn Black?
Three days ago, I took a very bad fall - I slipped on ice, lost balance & fell on my face!!
I remember hitting my teeth pretty hard, and I bit my lip as a result. The day after, my tooth felt painful when I pressured it, however, I am very lucky to say that it does not move & it does not hurt anymore.
Being that it is my front tooth, and that's what worries me, will it turn black as a result of the fall? I made an attempt to call my dentist but he was booked and asked me to call back monday.
I dont really want to shell out the money for this visit (no insurance), partly because I was told that if there is nerve damage, it wont show up one the xray so soon. So do I wait or should I just go to the dentist now? Either way, will my tooth turn black? Has this happened to anyone? It's my front tooth so I'm scared. Or is it going to be fine? It is not moving and it doesn't hurt as I bite down....I haven't bitten into something like an apple, for instance, but I bit down on my fork and it didnt hurt....anyone have any experience with something similar?
