Dental Trauma! All I want is my two front teeth!

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: gcmoore8  (7 years ago)
Last week I fell on the pavement and caught my fall with my upper front teeth. My left Canine was chipped, while my right Canine broke off at the gum line. Today they did a root canal and added a cap and a temporary tooth.
My front teeth a very wiggly and I can't really feel them. The dentist said that I need to wait a couple of weeks to see if the nerves start to die, or if the teeth regenerate.

My question is: Is there anything I can do to prevent these two teeth from dying? I know the basics: don't use them as much as possible, etc., but can I take certain vitamins/ eat certain foods, etc. that would promote tooth regeneration?

Any advice helps!!

yes vitamin B-complex particularly vit B1, B12, magnisium, folic acid helps in regeneration....but if nerve started dying then it will not be possible to prevent it....

So sorry to hear about your accident. My own son's incisors were traumatized in an auto wreck and it took a good amount of work to save them. But it finally turned out all right, as it probably will with you.

Nope, there is not much you can do to keep the pulps of teeth from dying. They might die in 3 months, or the roots may die in 2 years. One can never know how badly the blood supply to the pulp was compromised.

You might ask your dentist if he thinks it is worthwhile to splint your loose teeth with plastic and an archwire for 3 weeks until it heals.
