Fell, knocked out teeth, some chipped at gums. Is there anything that can be done?

i fell flat on my face and had a pretty bad fall where i knocked out my front 4 teeth . one is completely gone, one is half-way diagonally chipped, and the other two are chipped at the gum so it looks like they are not there. I understand implants are necessary but that is a long process in which I need to wait. is there anything that can be done within a week so i don t have to go to school for too long without teeth? I can t put the originals back in because the ER surgeon said they were too shattered.

Thanks for asking the query,

According to your history in the accident one tooth is avulsed and three are chipped off, in this condition I would suggest you to get the x-ray done which will decide the treatment plan.

If your teeth are dead or non vital, and if the x-ray shows a good bone support you can complete the root canal for the chipped tooth and get a post and core build up for your tooth, and if the tooth is infected at roots get the chipped pieces removed and replaced in position by a prosthetic bridge taking support from abutment tooth or an implant.

These are all treatment options for you, consult your Dentist and discuss about this.

Hope this helps out.
