BTD Forums  /  The Encyclopedia/ D'Adamo Library  /  Help!!! Fracture front tooth at base
Posted by: Cristina, Thursday, February 27, 2014, 2:21am
I just had a bit of an accident that resulted in my front left incisor tooth broken at the base!!! I am in no pain at the moment and booked app with dentist in 4 hours time.

In the meantime I am seeking advice from my fellow btders about what my options could be and what to select from whatever options the dentist will give me.  I know root canals are bad news, how about implants, or whatever else?  Also, what supps should I be giving myself ... I am thinking Proberry to fight infection?  ...

Thanks for your feedback ... ??)  :)

... and for my Australian peers ... do you know of any biological dentists in the Sunshine Coast?

Rescue Remedy, to calm that "crisis response" in the body.

I would not get a root canal.  After a couple of years of pondering, I might get an implant if I could afford it at the time.

There may be enough tooth left to be able to have it crowned.  That would be my first choice.

So crowns are OK?

The fracture is right at the base though, so no tooth left ... no bleeding though, so I assumed the roots are still there ...

Find a holistic dentist at about 30m from here ... booked for 2:30pm ... On someone's recommendation ... :)

Edited to clarify that the 30m means 30 minutes car drive from here!  not 30 metres from my place .... ;)  :) still pretty good!

Is it too late to put the tooth in milk and then re-attach it? I have heard of that working... :-/

Wow! I am happy with my new dentist!  It so happens that a lot of people around my realm are her customers ... :)

We looked at all our holistic options and decided for a bridge.  The earliest she can do it is Tuesday morning (today is Thursday), but she will prepare the bridge teeth next to it and quite strong still, remove what is left from the broken tooth (mainly roots and tiny base), take 3d rays and photos send it to her 3d sophisticated printer which will produce new tooth and bridge (some sort of ceramic safe material) and attach everything to my mouth permanently.  I should walk out of there in less than two hours with the new tooth secured in place.  

Amazing what they can do these days ...

OK, thanks for the suggestions everyone ... but I do not have much on Homeopathic medicine at home, but I do keep my BT supps ...

For the next few days I will have to clean up my mouth gently, but well ...

Should I up my calcium/mag intake? and vit C?  What protocols should I be looking at? considering on tuesday I may need to get local anaesthetic for that tooth extraction ...  I still have not find a holistic BT doctor near here ...  ::)

Cristina, I'm glad you came up with a solution that will work.  :)

Since the bridge involves drilling into two sound teeth (if I understand correctly) be very diligent in oral hygiene.  You probably already are, but rinse after eating anything.  Keep the interior of the mouth more alkaline.  Use dental floss daily, etc.

Definitely up your Vit C!

Thank you all!!!

No, the drilling is just in the one tooth, the one next to my damaged one.  She thinks it is strong enough to support the new tooth.  Either way, point well taken about oral hygiene, so important!!!

I broke my front upper tooth a few years ago and the dentist gave me a flip tooth.  Now my new dentist wants to do a bridge with that tooth and the empty space on the upper right side of my mouth.  He said my gum is growing down to meet my lower teeth.  I’m still thinking about whether I want to do this or not.  Insurance only covers a small part of the cost.  The rest is still expensive.

Hi RL!
You are at the right place for advice.  I don't know what a flip tooth is, but will find out soon.

I bet there is some kind of nutritional help for the gum situation.

Mrs T, I had to look that one up too.  Here is a link explaining what flip tooth is:


...flipper teeth are lightweight, removable dentures that usually serve as a temporary tooth replacement option. Basically, they keep you from having to walk around with a visible gap in your teeth for several weeks. They also give you an improved ability to bite and chew food while you're waiting to get dentures or implants. ...


Since I am having my permanent bridge done 4 days after the event, it was not worth it for me to get a flipper.

I agree, Insurance gives you only a fraction of what these procedures costs ... costly heads up in being careful and attentive of where you thread, what you put in your mouth, what you do with it and look after number one.  Living in the moment has taken a deeper meaning for us ... :)
