What is the life expectancy of my avulsed tooth?

Posted by danielly2

In april of 2004 I was hit in the mouth by a line drive from a softball. My right front tooth was avulsed. the other two surrounding were knocked back and eventually died. I had root canals on all three teeth. I am just worried about how long my avulsed tooth and other two necrotic teeth will last. Will I have to eventually get implants? Is there anything I can do to make my teeth last as long as possible in my mouth? With the avulsed tooth I am also experienceing light, but painless throbbing.. what does this mean?

The dentist who performed the endodontics and replantation is more aware of the anatomic realities associated with your accident can answer your questions with informed knowledge better than I can generalize from the incomplete information you can provide in an email.  That dentist is the best source of the answers you are seeking.
