Q:I broke my tooth on a hard candy and now it hurts. What should I do?
A:You can try over the counter remedies until you have time to get to a dentist. However, it is important you see a dentist right away. Even if the pain stops. It might mean the difference between saving your self from a root canal or extraction.
