About a month ago, I bit into a very hard piece of food and heard/felt a crack. The next day it was throbbing and loose. It continued to loosen and become more painful. I couldn’t get into the dentist until yesterday and he advised I had horizontally fractured my tooth and had a small infection. He said that because the area is so tiny that instead of an extraction and implant, that he would recommend extraction and braces on the lower teeth. Just wondering if this is common practice in that area and if it will be noticeable to others?
