well first of all the FIRST thing that should have been done was an xray to see if ther was nerve damage......i would advise GET ANOTHER DENTIST ASAP!
i dont understand what you mean by "then he pulled my tooth back into position with a round stick thing (my tooth had dropped significantly ouch!) and cemented it to the adjacent teeth"
he just shoved it back into the gums? and glued it there?....if so that will do no good and the tooth will probably die, then you will have to get a root canal and a crown.....
you could get a crown done to that tooth ( will shave down tooth abd add a cap to the top, kinda like a bridge but just a single tooth instead of 3 teeth), an implant would be great but it is expensive, a bridge could be done, but why drill down 2 other good teeth?.....
if i were you i would deff see another dentist that take xrays and gives you proper treatment,.,,,,
dental assisnt and in school to be a dental hygienist
It's ill advised to get a crown placed on a fractured tooth. A three unit bridge affects two healthy teeth, the tooth in front of the fractured one, and the tooth in the back of it. You're talking about a very esthetic area, right in the front of your mouth, so if you can manage, I too advise you to get a dental implant. I have two myself and am really happy with them.
You could look into a two unit bridge. Possibly crowning #8 and add an abutment for #9 as it sounds like it may need extraction. There is a risk no matter what you go with. Implants are not a sure thing and they can be rejected for various reasons.
I would go for a second opinion and have an x-ray taken first, you need to know what is going on under the gingiva.
Some people have had a Maryland Bridge seated and they work fine for them. The one I mentioned was a two unit cantilever bridge.
I am including a link explaining bridges a bit better.
Hope you feel better soon and all works out..
