Sorry to hear about your son's tooth. A Maryland bridge, or fake tooth with wings, can be bonded to the backsides of his adjacent teeth. This type of restoration is ideal because it stays fixed in the mouth, but excellent home care, including a special way to floss around this tooth, is a must to maintain optimal health and esthetics. Look for an excellent cosmetic dentist to help you. As he is only 10 years old, he will have many developmental changes related to his growth, including facial and dental changes, for 10+ years. Once his growth pattern stabilizes, he will be ready for a more permanent fix like a dental implant. But until then, expect multiple dental visits to keep up with his growth and maintain his dental health.
All the best, Sarah Kong, DDS
