I have been reading “guidelines for selecting appropriate patients to receive treatment with dental implants guidelines” and it was just an email for some advice or to ask who I could seek advice from.
I had an accident when I was about 10 years old that caused me to loose my front tooth. This tooth was then put back into place and I received antibiotic treatment for a long while. I had a veneer put into place when I was 16, however due to recurrent infection my dentist at the time told me that my body was rejecting the tooth And it would need to be replaced with an implant in the future. Since the age of 13/14 I go through recurrent episodes of pain and visible abscess’ which the dentist had stopped giving me antibiotics for as he said they wouldn’t work. I recently fainted at work and broke my veneer and after visiting my dentist I was told that he could replace it with a crown but the root of the tooth has eroded that much I’ve probably got a year to two before it will fall out or need to be removed.
I wanted to know if/ where I would fit into the implant guidelines and who to talk to as my dentist has not been very helpful. I am only 21 and this has been an on going issue since the age of 10 which I would love to just be over.
