Hi
Yes you will be able to get this fixed and it is important you see you dentist straight away with the tooth. I would also take your brace that you wear at night if you can easily find it as your dentist may be able to use this to help with your treatment. Your dentist will be able to help you, what they advise is difficult to say without seeing you but it is essential you see them as soon as possible.
Good luck!
