What happens when you:
- Break a cusp
- Cant chew, and
- Are going out of the country in 2 days?
This lovely guy had a tooth that was cracked from his old mercury fillings. He couldn’t bite down without sharp pain.
He was amazed that all in the same day we were able to fix his problem, and that he didn’t have to worry about traveling with a temporary that could crack or come out.

Preoperative. Couldn’t see the cusp fracture until we removed the filling.
Removed filing, the cusp fell off. There were multiple fractures that were causing pain.
