I'm sitting here, reading up on E3 shit at 2:30am, chewing gum, and after around 30 minutes of chewing, the gum gently took a piece of my back tooth with it. It just fell out. It doesn't hurt, everything happened so calmly and smoothly, and i'm still in quiet disbelief. But i've got this huge gap in one of my teeth now with the remaining piece sitting on my desk, and it feels f'in weird.

I would contact someone else, but it's 2:30 in the morning. wtf

Drink a glass of ice cold water to check if the nerves in your tooth are still alive. Then stuff the cavity with aluminum foil.seriously, what did you expect? go see a dentist first thing in the morning.

I don't floss, but I brush. Had issues with teeth before, but nothing at all out of the ordinary, and certainly nothing like that...wtf

Sounds like one of those bad dreams where your teeth fall out. Don't worry, they're not real. I had one just like this, actually. It's late, so you probably fell asleep at the computer and this, too, is a dream. Punch yourself in the teeth and see if that wakes you up.

This happened to me once, the corner of a tooth at the back cracked off so i went to the dentist immediatley and needed a pretty big filling. The whole thing freaked me out and since then ive been brushing my teeth obsessively.

It might be a sign that you are grinding your teeth at night. Your other teeth might have fractures in them. Best to go see a dentist and wear a night guard when you sleep.

I wonder why people have dreams about their teeth. I loathe them and makes me shiver thinking about it.

My roommate was in Japan and he chipped a chunk of one of his front teeth out. He stuck it back on himself using superglue.

You will be doing more damage to your teeth if you brush excessively b/c it strips your enamel.

part of one of my fang teeth are missing. it got chipped off somehow. Its not even cool like in anime either because I cant smile and have one tooth sticking out! god my life sucks!

also my front 2 teeth are partly-fake because I thought I could stand on my bike with no hands when I was younger and flew off the bike and landed on my face. then my mom let the tooth go down the drain on accident while she was cleaning up the blood

I had a chip come off the side of my tooth last year, it's not a problem. I went to the dentist and my teeth were perfectly fine after an xray, they just patch it up and it feels like new again. Could be caused from making contact with a fork or something solid.

Usually an anxiety dream--pretty common if you're stressed out about something or feel like you're losing control. Its close cousins are the falling dream and the naked-in-public dream.

I've heard losing a tooth represents fear of object loss. Deep.

You should put the part of the tooth you chipped in milk, I remember hearing that somewhere, maybe the calcium helps perserve it?

Had this two weeks ago, it was already filled from a hole last year but now it just broke in half. They have to get the remaining piece out of there and I will have a hole between me teeth all my life now. Sucks, but thats life.

Bump for my tooth drama.

Ok, so 2 months ago, I had some cavities and found out I needed some fillings. Got fillings. a week later, I had pain one of my teeth. The pain persisted for 2 months. Lived on aspirin for 2 weeks. On thursday, I went to the dentist and he said he could re-fill it or I could get a root canal. The re-filling sounded risky, so I decided to get a root canal. They put a temp crown on the tooth on fri. and when I was eating chinese food on fri. night, I heard a loud POP! sound and the tooth fell off. I don't feel any pain, thank God. Why does this shit always have to happen right at the beginning of the weekend? I'm already $2G on this, and if they have to put in a bridge or something, it will be expensive as fuck. I hope all they'll be able to put the crown in that's being made right now. Maybe it's good I found out about this cracked tooth now, because I wouldn't want it to happen when the permenent one is put in.

Thank God I've saved up money the past year and live with my parents, or I'd be murderkilled by these dentist bills.

Another bump.

I was eating mac & cheese & Onion rings for lunch and my crown fell out. I think the cement just lost its hold. Hopefully they just have to put some more in. Thank god it didn't crack - that would be expensive as shit.

At least it didn't happen yesterday.

This exact same thing happened to me years ago. Was eating cereal, IIRC, and a third of one of my back tooths, the back of it, just cracked off. Same as you, there was zero pain etc. and I was bewildered by it. I was desperately worried, but in the end, all that was required was a (rather large) filling. No root canal. Years later and it's still fine.

Get yourself to a dentist though, get an emergency appointment if your dentist has a long wait time.

that happened to me when I bit down on some candy once. Chipped my molar. Went to the dentist, filled it. No problems. Should be easy. Unless you live in Britain.

When I still had my baby teeth, I was chewing mad amounts of Hubba Bubba to read the comics and one of my teeth chipped, I thought one of the pieces of gum had a rock in it, but it was my fucking tooth!

Thankfully, I haven't had any problems with my adult teeth.

Half of one of my rear molars broke off just before Xmas. I was eating a toffee (mmm, brazilian darkness) and it just came off.

It was a tooth that has a root filling so the actual metal filling was in place like a centre pole and completely exposed with half of the tooth in my hand.

Had it temporarily filled in an emergency and now I've gotta get a crown. Quick 700...

That's exactly what you need. I have a fantastic dentist in London, and a similar problem as you did. He told me flat out that a filling isn't going to stay in the place where it was as so much of chewing concentrated there. He said he could do one, but that he would recommend a porcelain crown which is pretty much for life.

Only thing is that you'll need to pick the colour with care, because it can't be changed. So if you are ever to whiten your teeth, factor it in.

Half of one of my upper molars cracked and broke off a few months ago. I ignored it and other than the giant hole in my mouth I'm fine. It hurts for a few days and then it's fine. Get that shit fixed though, I work as a nurse on a Neuro unit and I've seen people die from tooth abscesses.
