Q.

aaahhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! not again!

hi there dental doc.. last year i had to have a root canal on my 1 top left molar and all was good after that. then about 1 month ago while eating droe-wors ( yum!) a huge piece broke off the front of that same tooth ( about 3mm x 3mm). it wasn''t sore then. but since then pieces of the tooth have started to " fall"  off and now its gotten to the point where i am only chewing food on the other side of my mouth coz now it hurts!! what is worse is that my dentist ( who is so nice and the only dentist i don''t get anxiety attacks with ) has emigrated to australia (typical)!!! so i don''t wanna go to another dentist! what should i do... help...
