June 30th, I tripped whilst running and fell, my teeth bore the initial impact- upper right incisor cracked and upper left incisor slightly chipped. I saw a dentist two day afterwards who filled the chipped tooth with composite and an X-ray revealed that my right incisor was cracked not only n the middle as if you we’re looking at me but also under the gum at the back of the tooth. The tooth was treated with roo canal, a reconstructive post and a temp crown. Since then I have noticed that my upper teeth seem to have retracted, loss of lip support and therefore volume and mouth appears less full. I have been told my jaw could have jarred, what does this mean? End of Aug an abscess appeared on the gum above my upper right incisor. I have since had it removed- and a bone graft so it is rely for an implant, a temp bridge currently sits in place of the missing tooth. My real concern now if with the change in my lips/ face. Loss of lip support! Philtrum appears falter and longer, bite feels different and physically I can feel a significant difference.
Can you advise if their are any solutions for me? I do not want a lip filler as that will not alter the actual structure of my mouth or the way it feels functionally? This is really distressing me and I am really looking to explore solutions.
Yours in hope.
