Broken/Cracked tooth

A few years ago one of my molars (top right) cracked/broke into 2. This tooth was later filled without anything done to the crack/break. 4 weeks ago I ate something and cracked/broke the filling and one half of the tooth. I now have a tooth which is in effect in 3 parts and a filling that now covers 2 parts. 1 part of the tooth is loose. I was in a lot of pain because it irritated the nerve so I took Hypericum 200c last week. This acted well and I no longer have nerve pain. However I am still not able to eat on the side where the tooth is damaged because it moves and would cause pain or break away totally. I do not want any dental treatment. I would therefore like to know how I promote healing of the breaks/fractures and would appreciate any help with this.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Nothing can be done at this stage for the crumbled tooth.Get it extracted.Whole or the moving part.

Many thanks for your replay. Can you tell me under which conditions teeth cracks/breaks can repair with Homeopathy? Can teeth re-grow? What is the difference between teeth and bones?

What is the difference between teeth and bones?

Teeth and bones look similar and share some commonalities, including being the hardest substances in your body. But teeth aren’t actually bone.

Bones are living tissue. They’re made up of the protein collagen and the mineral calcium phosphate. This enables bones to be strong but flexible.

Teeth are not living tissue. They’re comprised of four different types of tissue:

dentin
enamel
cementum
pulp
The pulp is the innermost part of a tooth. It contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. The pulp is surrounded by dentin, which is covered by the enamel.

Enamel is the hardest substance in the body. It has no nerves. Though some remineralization of enamel is possible, it can’t regenerate or repair itself if there’s significant damage. This is why it’s important to treat tooth decay and cavities sooner rather than later.

The cementum covers the root, under the gum line, and helps the tooth stay in place. Teeth also contain other minerals, but do not have any collagen. Because teeth are not living tissue, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene, since early damage to teeth cannot be naturally repaired.

While teeth and bones might appear to be the same material at first glance, they’re actually quite different. Bones can repair and heal themselves, while teeth cannot.
