Broken Tooth: See your general dentist for an evaluation. Although you may feel that your bruxism caused the fracture, there are other possibilities. Once that tooth is treated and restored, it would be wise to have a bruxism appliance fabricated. If a specialist is needed, your dentist will refer you.
