Help me. I just left the hospital after a car accident. I lost most of my upper teeth. I am way to young for dentures. Please tell me there is now an alternative!

I’m so sorry about the accident and your losing your teeth at a young age. That must be quite a trial to endure. Fortunatly, I have good news for you. There is now a much better solution for replacing your teeth than dentures.
Talk to your dentist about dental implants. They are far superior to dentures. It does require a surgical procedure to secure replacements for your tooth roots. Above those will be placed dental crowns.
It will be like having your natural teeth back. You can eat what you want and brush and floss your teeth just like before.
It’s quite an advanced procedure, so make sure you go to a dentist who has specialized training so you can avoid any unnecessary complications.
