Two front teeth knocked out
I didn't know there was dental problems I could get advice on, but here goes. Two weeks ago today, my 13 yr old son had a bike accident and fell face first onto the pavement knocking both two front teeth out BY THE ROOTS. After a long night in the ER, they placed them back up in his gums (painfully). We were able to get to an oral surgeon first thing that Monday morning and they wired the two front teeth to the surrounding teeth. The oral surgeon said it's a 50/50 chance of those teeth fusing back to the bone in his gums. He (surgeon) won't know for about 3 more weeks or so if the teeth will live. I'm so upset since he is so young! Now we are looking at possibly having a partial put in until he is old enough to have implants. My question to everyone is....has anyone else ever went through this and had the teeth fuse back to the bone sucessfully??? I'm hoping and praying everyday that these teeth are saved!! He wants to play football next year, so would he be able to do that if he had a partial??? How do those stay in?
