It is very unfortunate that you had to go through that. Unfortunately, teeth continue to be effected long after accidents like this occurred. It's difficult to understand what you need to have done without seeing you or an exam and without seeing any X-rays. My advice to you would be to do a lot of research and find a dentist that is very experience in doing reconstructive dentistry. It is important that each step is completed well, so that you can keep your teeth for as long as possible. Do some research, and don't cut any corners!
