  • If the molar is fractured then you have to schedule an appointment with dentist who will take the xrays and find out whether the tooth is restorable or not. If the tooth is restorable then may be you will need root canal treatment with post and core and crown on top of that. But if the tooth is not restorable then you have to get the tooth pulled out and you can go for implant aor bridge in place of that. If the gum swollen then he can do warms saline rinses and maintain good oral hygiene till you schedule an appointment with dentist. for more info on dental emergencies you can check this article.... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-dental-emergencies-14.aspx
