NO WAY!: Your teeth are important for your dental and general health. They help you chew, swallow, speak, and smile. The loss of any tooth may cause your mouth to shift and your face to look older and effect your digestion. The good news is missing teeth can be replaced. Depending on your needs the options are: implants, fix bridges and removable partials. Rec. See your dentist today.

Exam needed: You need to be evaluated by a dentist looking at xrays of the roots to determine if there are fractures that need to be addressed or if the teeth can be saved.

Evaluation: The condition of these teeth as well as the remaining teeth need physical evaluation with radiographs. Only then can the options be discussed with you.

Lost front teeth: I can understand how upsetting and frustrating it can be to lose teeth from a mva. Especially at the young of age of 25, removing teething unnecessarily will result in more problems over time. Implant retained crowns would probably be your best long term solution and the next best thing to your own healthy natural teeth. However, see a competent gd or prosthodontist to discuss your options.
