I was attacked. Now I’ve got a fractured wrist and why I’m writing you is my front teeth are loose. The doctor’s said that they are not fractured, but I’m worried that I’ll loose the teeth anyway because they are so loose. Do you know if I can do anything to protect them?

I’m sorry you were attacked. If the teeth aren’t fractured, then the next step is to have your dentist stabalize them. First he’ll need to get them into their correct placement and then bond them into a fixed position.
If this was done by your boyfriend or husband, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) has a Give Back a Smile Program. That helps victims of domestic violence get the dental care they need.
