My front teeth were knocked out by my husband. He’s been put in jail, but I don’t know what to do about my teeth. Can an emergency dentist take care of this?

I’m very sorry this happened to you. I’m glad you had the fortitude to call the police. You must be a strong woman. An emergency dentist would have a chance at saving your front teeth if you were able to get to them within thirty minutes. After that is become very difficult.
That doesn’t mean your without hope. If it turns out they’ve been out too long to save, there are excellent tooth replacements. Some of which look and function just like your natural teeth.
There is also a program called Give Back a Smile, where dentists volunteer their time to help restore the smile of victims of domestic abuse. After you’ve seen an emergency dentist, if you have any problems, give them a call.
