I have a broken tooth and have to see my dentist again. The dentist whom I had consulted earlier suggested extraction, but the tooth condition has gotten worse. The tooth is located in the left back region of the jaw and I am not experiencing any pain. I have been waiting for my doctor's appointment which could take a while. I am anxious to fall asleep. Is it dangerous to fall asleep while my tooth condition worsens? Please provide your insights to resolve my worry.
I can understand your concern regarding your dental health.
The probable cause for your condition is a fractured tooth in the left side of the jaw. There is no pain present in the affected tooth. Therefore, you can fall asleep without being anxious. When your dentist calls for an appointment, do get the needed treatment for further relief. Hence, you should not worry much.
I hope this information is helpful to resolve your query, and further queries are always welcome.
Wish you good health.
Thank you and take care.
