Hi, Ive just chomped on a popcorn Kernal and shattered the inside side of my molar. It already has a big metal filling which is fine – it is the tooth below which is shattered. It is very sensitive – i cannot touch it without massive nerve pain. Can I use Corsodyl on it even if nerve is exposed (will that hurt??)Can I use a temporary filling fill such as a zinc oxide based product until the Dentists reopen on Monday. Any info gratefully appreciated. In immense pain!

It is unlikely that corsodyl will help as it is a mouthwash for acute gum disease
The zinc oxide temp filling will cover the sensitive exposed dentine but it sounds like the edge of tooth has broken below the gum margin and is cutting into the gum (a bit like a hangnail) and will only improve by your dentist removing the broken piece and repairing the tooth with a temporary or proper filling. All practices should offer emergency appointments or contact to an out of hours service. If yours does not then I suggest you change practice
