Fairly straight-forward; Several months ago I noticed a tiny chip in my lower left wisdom tooth, which also has a filling in it, and 2 nights ago the inside-rear quarter of it broke away, so you can see a small part of the side of the filling.
Since then I've brushed and used mouthwash as I normally do, but started using a saltwater mouthwash because the gum is already starting to feel slightly strange around it (right now it feels absolutely fine, but whenever I notice it with my tongue I freak myself out
Luckily my 6 month check-up is on monday, so the timing couldn't be more perfect. My main worry is that my dentist will want to extract the tooth (and the corresponding top wisdom) or re-drill the filling so it isn't exposed in the corner the way it is currently. Would any sane dentist do either or just leave it since it's filled and only broken in one corner unlike my other wisdoms?
Hopefully you can all put my mind at ease before I go to see my dentist on monday.
