I've broken most of the tooth off flat across the gum. So I've got a "stump" that's pretty much flush with the gum.
What we're going to try is that she will build the area up in a "filling-in-a-cage" like she did two times before ... and then she'll install a crown. I've decided to go with a crown.
Fortunately it's only about $1500 so it isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be!
If, when she's working on the tooth, she thinks we'd do better with a root canal, we'll go that route but right now, the tooth is still alive and not very painful so at this point, she doesn't think I'll need a root canal.
However, we will talk about a custom night mouthguard. I have tried the store-bought ones and none have fit me. They're so big! My dentist figures I just need a small one that is fairly specific to the area where I'm grinding.

Just a quick question - has anyone ever used resistance bands, either loop or cable-type?
They would probably look something like these:
I had one loop-type when I was in PT after the knee replacement, but it's disappeared... I don't have the space to put them or the cash to buy a decent weight set, but these might do the trick. And you can work out your legs as well.
Thanks for any info you've got...
