A broken tooth does not always mean an extraction and denture. Today a lady attended with broken front teeth after a fall.
Unfortunately, the small tooth beside the incisor was not saveable. So a temporary bridge was made at the chair side that allowed us to place two teeth. The patient was happy and so were we. In 3-4 months we will place a more permanent bridge after the area where the tooth was removed has healed.
