From your photo, it appears the tooth nerve has died. It is also super-erupting. Most times that this happens is due to infection following an injury, but it appears the tooth is dead.
Please go to the dentist. If there is infection at the root of the tooth, it can spread to your other teeth. Right now, if you have to have the tooth removed you could do one implant or a bridge.
I waited with something very similar to yours and ended up having all four front teeth removed because of bone loss and shifting.
It may be a far easier and cheaper fix now, than later. Please get to see your dentist.
Hope this helps.
Best to you,
Thanks for letting me know! I'll go o the dentist asap
Hi, but there is and has never been, any pain in that tooth how did it die?
it usually doesnt get knocked because i have that sticking out tooth that takes all the knoks
might have pushed it before when i was little, bu thas about it. Thanks!
There really doesn't have to be pain for a nerve to die. When they do though, the tooth can get that grayish appearance. Even a dentist may not be able to tell you how or when it happened.
The reason it's important to get to a dentist is because if the tooth is dead, the bone holding it in may start to reabsorb around the root. This will eventually loosen the tooth, and the teeth nearby may have a tendency to twist in their sockets to fill in the space.
I just had to have my front four teeth removed and implants done for a very similar problem.
There are so many more options open to you if you do something sooner, rather than later, but I really think you need to do something, especially if another tooth shows the same symptoms.
Please let us know how you're doing and if you solve this problem.
My best to you,
Yeah I will make an appointment on Monday. Jus wondering how much does it cost to get a tooth implant?
I'm so glad you're making an appt with your dentist! Whatever it takes, the first step is getting to the dentist.
Like I said, I had to have the four. The implants and extractions alone were $2K each. Then the crowns and abutments were another $1175 each . I also had to use a metal removable partial while they healed and that was another $1250.
I guess when you add it all up they ran about $3500 each and maintenance of going for cleanings every three months is $125 each session. I'll be doing that for life.
I love them, though. Worth every penny.
It does cost alot though, I hope for minimal damage to my teeth! Thanks for answering, best wishes! L
