(Daytona Beach, Fl.)
My 17 year old son knocked out two teeth a week ago. We had consultation appointments with two different dentists today and received VERY different advice.
The first recommended we let his mouth heal for 8 weeks. When we see him in 8wks, we will discuss temporary implants until we are positive he is done growing and will do the implants during his senior year of HS. The 2nd dentist told me he would put two implants in right after the 1st of the year and take his wisdom teeth out at the same time.
I expressed my concern about growth (only because of what the other dentist told me) and he said it doesn't matter and that he has put implants in 14 year olds. The 1st of the year is only one month away.
