Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

Tooth broken next to the extracted tooth has to be replaced or extracted for permanent relief.

I would advice you to get a thorough clinical evaluation done.
If the fracture involves pulp,tooth has to be root canal treated and crown has to be placed.

If tooth cannot be saved,get it extracted.

Antibiotics as well as analgesics will help to relieve pain.

Meanwhile,avoid chewing on hard objects.

Take care.
