Tooth replacement/implant for teenager
by j Heslin
My son had an accident and was bashed in the teeth about 18 months ago. He eventually had root canal treatment but recently has been in severe pain and it seems that it has not worked and so he has to be referred to a specialist dental hospital.
He is now 15 years old, the tooth is next to his front tooth. When can he have a permanent replacement fitted and what obligations/if any have the NHS to solving the problem?
