Hi all-I'm pretty sure my 4 year old cracked a molar while eating popcorn. She woke up complaining of slight pain this am and it looked like there's a line through the bottom of it that is not there on the other teeth. She's not in a lot of pain and I'm definitely taking her to the dentist but I'm wondering...

1)can I do anything to help heal the crack (bone broth etc)? I remember reading on here somewhere that people try to heal cavities etc with some sort of paste as well? I'm assuming that it's a small, heal-able crack or else she'd be in more pain since it would be affecting the root, right?

2)has anyone had this happen with such a young child and if so, what did they do to fix it?
