A. Contact our office as soon as possible. If the nerve is exposed, treatment will need to be done which could include a root canal. A composite band-aid can be placed as a temporary filling if the nerve is not exposed. This will help reduce sensitivity and a permanent filling can be placed in 10-14 days if the sensitivity has decreased. Following any trauma to the front teeth: (1) Soft diet for 7 days (2) Over the counter analgesics/anti-inflammatory meds like Advil or Motrin every 8 hours for 3 days (3) Antibiotics on a case by case basis, particularly if soft tissue trauma/bleeding occur.
