Bruised and chipped front teeth: I am an 18 yer old. When I was at the age of 8, I ran into an adult and I fell on my two front top teeth. And today, one of them is bruised and pushed almost halfway into the gums. The other just got chipped badly.

I want to ask if I should extract them and do dental implants because whenever I eat or drink anything hot or cold, or if it's cold weather, my teeth just starts hurting. ... Visitor from NY

The best teeth to have are your own teeth, They have ligaments which attach to the bone and gums which form shock absorbers and allows you to know how hard or soft something is that you are eating.

Implants will also create this sensation for you. The front teeth are very important for this sensation. Even if the teeth have root canals and lose the hot and cold feelings they will still have the hard and soft feelings. The teeth can then be crowned and a beautiful functioning smile can be had.

The best would be for you to be seen. Better individual advice can be given.
