Yes, I would think you now have an open circuit as I am sure the element is fried. It should be easy enough to check with a volt meter across the element terminals (breaker turned off and wires disconnected of course). Infinite resistance would identify an open circuit. Check to see if your meter has a continuity setting as this will also tell you if there is an open in the circuit.
