Just got my first tooth knocked out playing Ice Hockey

I just got my front tooth knocked the heck out about a half an hour ago playing open hockey. I beat the guy spun around and then wham. My mouth went numb. I look like one of the guys from slapshot. Well sort of. There weren't any black hockey players in there. But you get the idea.. What should I expect when I see the dentist? Is it going to take a long time to replace the tooth. How expensive is it going to be?

Nice! welcome to the brotherhood, you are now one of the elite!

Im missing three, i didnt have to pay to replace all of them so i cant really give you a figure. It will be sore for a day or two, but the worst of it is over. Keep the hole clean, you wont want an infection in there.

I recommend not getting an implant, you will get a bit more space now if you leave the gap in your chaw when you play and the chicks dig it. Not all of them, but the ones you will want to meet on a friday night

EDIT: bah, i just saw where your from. I dont really know the hockey culture down there, the chicks might just think your weird.

I used to think it couldn't happen to me then I ended up taking 12 stitches over my eye one time and 6 over my nose another. Cage for me.. you just never know when things are gonna fly your way, including errant high sticks from people who don't know how to carry them.

Welcome to the club. Hope all goes well in Europe, good luck to you.

And to all the cage lovers. I lost teeth wearing one so nothing is fool proof. I wore a cage for 15 years until I finished Juniors and haven't worn one in the 25 years since and won't. Lost more teeth wearing one than not wearing one. Sometimes it just happens.

My buddy who is a dentist said you do not replace the tooth unless you plan on quitting. He said you do not want to know what getting that tooth ripped out again would do to your jaw.

Thanks for the heads up. I won't go for a permanent replacement tooth then. I guess I will just get a post or temporary tooth. The ones that Heatly has.lol

I lost my front tooth about a year ago and the whole dentist ordeal sucked. What happened to me was I didn't lose the entire tooth, just most of it, and it cracked right on the nerve, so it was exposed. So, I had to go to an endodontic specialist to perform a root canal. From there, I got a crown or whatever you call it, which was like a really rough, crappy fake tooth, and then finally I got fitted for a porcelain permanent tooth after the removed almost all of the rest of the tooth. But, in the meantime, since it happened right before Halloween, I just told the dentist not to fix it for a while, so I had a genuine Ozarks man costume, equip with coon-skin hat.
There are perks
I thought about just leaving it, but as someone who was going to graduate college and looking for jobs in international organizations and governmental posts, it wouldn't have been a great tactic on my part to leave this gaping hole in the front of my mouth.
I think the Endodontic Specialist cost like $400 and the dentist cost like...$1000? I don't remember though, I had to go like 9 times for all the work, and I ended up getting most of it covered from worker's comp since I was actually the instructor at the rink when it happened haha.

Always wear a mouthgaurd. I took a puck right in the mouth from a guy that was trying to ice the puck. My mouth went numb, took five stitches to my lower lip and my mouthgaurd ended up in the goalies net lol. I did not loose any teeth though. When I saw the dentist the next day he said had it not been for that mouthgaurd I would be minus about three teeth.

..... Get a mouthgaurd!!

I never lost any teeth but my chin is torn to shreds. Because of my cage and the way I guess my face is, every impact to my head went straight into that chin guard. I must've busted my face open every other game in high school, at least when I played.

Sometimes people die because they were wearing a seat belt and would have lived if they didn't have it on, but I don't think I would recommend not wearing one because "sometimes it just happens".

If you played up until junior, you probably have decent reflexes and can move in time. Some of us are just too slow, too uncoordinated and too old to react in time. I've had plenty of sticks hit my shield and when I've tried to play without one, I find that anytime the puck could come up, I'm flinching. But that's just me.

Of course you would flinch, a puck is coming at your face!

That sucks. What happened to me was like HVPOLARBEARS19.
Most of my front tooth broke off. Im still rocking the temporary crown, to get it done properly would cost me about $1000.

Say if your whole tooth is gone and you need an implant do they still need to do the root canal?

I think it depends on the nerve. If there isn't damage to the nerve then probably not. Do a google search on root canal's.

That is pretty much what I have. I still have some of the tooth. But most is gone so there is a huge gap between the teeth.lol. I am planning on getting the temporary crown. Do you have to take the crown out when you eat?
