I am told that I have tooth fracture and extraction is the only way. I am bit worried. Initially I had tremendous pain in the tooth whenever I was eating or drinking. But with temp filling and the use of brufen pain has subsided. I am not taking anything hot or cold at the moment for precaution. There are sudden start of pain at night, but after I take brufen it stops. I am attaching Xrays, is it possible I can evade extraction or the fracture is too severe? Expert recommendation will be appreciated. In the Xray, its the bottom first tooth from left.
