I need to know what to do. I’ve lost my two front teeth after my husband beat me. I’ve left him and gone back to my parents. They took me to the hospital and now that I’m out, my mom says it is time to take care of my teeth. I want to know what is the best thing to do.
Before anything else, I’m going to say how brave you were to get out of that situation. Many women stay trapped and end up having children trapped as well. It had to have been terrifying. I’m glad to hear your parents are there to help support you at this time.
I want to suggest you get dental implants to replace your front teeth. These will be completely secured so that you will be able to eat anything you want as well as brush and floss normally.
First, the dentist will need to do some x-rays to check for additional damage. If everything is ready, you can go ahead with the dental implants.
You want to be careful who does the procedure. You want someone with significant post-doctoral training in placing dental implants. For instance, Dr. Imam is a member of the Spear Study Club, a group of dentists committed to studying advanced procedures in dental restoration.
Why Dental Implants are Important
It sounds like you are still fairly young. That makes dental implants even more important. When teeth are removed or lost, your body recognizes that. Assuming you no longer need the bone to support your teeth, your body resorbs the minerals. This causes the bone where you are missing teeth to shrink. It will make you look much older than you are.
Getting Beautiful Dental Implants
You also want to make certain that the person who does your implant crowns is a skilled cosmetic dentist. Look at their smile gallery, specifically checking out how he or she does porcelain crowns on front teeth. It should look natural, translucent, and bright. If you aren’t thrilled by the beauty of what you see, move on to a different dentist.
