Choices after bike accident


Choices after bike accident - 10 year old kid!

Our son knocked his tooth out just after his 8th birthday, the tooth was put back in. It has been in but still wiggly for 2 1/2 years. I think we are getting to the point where we are going to have to make a choice.

Should we just leave the space and let his teeth drift into the space then get braces and implant later or should we put in a flipper? The tooth is not the front 2 teeth but one beside it.

Will a bone graft need to be done in both scenarios? What are your thoughts?

Wait for a year or two! If you are in hurry put flipper. Wait till patient grows completely then only go for fixed prosthesis.
Dental implant definetly after 17 years of age,because patient needs to grow facially, skeletally etc..
