As mentioned by you, it seems you have a fracture of tooth involving pulp... Please visit a dentist and get a radiograph after which it can be assesed if you have only crown fracture or a root fracture as well. In case of a crown fracture a routine root canal can be done followed by a crown placement if required.

Dentist Dr. Benley George's  Response
First of all you have not mentioned your age.An xray of the tooth should be done to determine if there is any root fracture. A root fracture results in poor success. If there is no root fracture the tooth can be root canal treated and then a cap should be placed over the tooth and thus your smile will be restored to normal.

use the cap treatment of the fractured tooth, did you take any X-ray? teeth is a sensitive issue. not to neglect.
Dentist Dr. Sushil Babu's  Response
u can as well throw away ur broken tooth piece as it is of no use now as u said ur tooth is half broken assuming as pulpal involvement u may require an root canal procedure with crown after wards..not to worry they both r routine procedures although u need to get an x ray first as suggested by ur dentist

Hi Dr. I am 36 years old male. I broke my fibula in the bottom of my ankle of left leg on 31 of August 2014 I went to emergency and they put me cast. The emergency unit told me that I may not need surgery. On the 9th of Sept 14 I was called for X ray and I was told that my bone is dislocated 3mm and I need to go through surgery. I was operated on the 11th of Sept 14 and they put me a metal and six screws . On 22nd of Sept. 14 I was called an x-ray I was told the bone is aligned well now and they gave me another appointment for an X-ray which will be the 20th of October 14. I have lighter cast on about 20 days now. So now I am waiting until the 20th of October which be nearly 6 weeks and I am hoping my bone will heal. My question is was it necessary to go through surgery about 3mm bone misalignment? Was there other alternative or method that could fix my bone without surgery. I have no pain at all, I recently stopped blood thinning injection after I developed symptoms like fatigue, lost of appetite, bleeding in the teeth, not sleeping enough hours, confusion or stress. when I stopped like four days ago I am getting better now. Please help Jason
