Noticed loose sockets,pain in head due to an external injury

hi, I have a request: last year I fell on my face, and long story short I bled from the mouth had no symptoms right afterward, but had bruises, and teeth "movin" out of their sockets,, but nothing came from that staright awa.. the bones of the face mainly were affected which to my reasonable point of view included the brain.. the only symptoms I had were pain inmy bony structures mandibule, and occasional pain in the head ( not headaches), anyway I recently went to the dentist to assess what the cost will be for the council to pay and or contribute, one of the treatment is that one of my tooth which is already A SENSITIVE ONE AND HAD RECEIVED TREATMENT is alveolar bone loss,, I was wondering if except for the fact that this is a symptom of periodontal disease, anything could be more serious or atleast coming from the fall.. I also recently developed head pain in the temple or head not lasting though as in headaches.. and feel not well.. I also have lightheadness , and something that actually happened about a couple of months after the fall,,, and had very bad spells, which prompeted to seek a chiropractor who helped me in the immediate, abut it seem as though it is back.. any feedback.. is the jawbone deteriorating with the periodontal disease and that one tooth affected by it..? any other suggestions and or comments?

Hello
Welcome to HCM
Dont worry about alveolar loss or bone loss.for this get proper currettage done and proper cleaning which will remove granulation tissue and help in healing of bone.then after that you will not feel moving of teeth in socket. Meanwhile you can do warm saline gargles and gum paint 3 to 4 times a day.
You will find strength in your teeth.
Thank you

thanks for your query,
the features what you are giving looks like you have multiple issues mainly the tooth which has bone loss needs to be assessed and requires a periodontal gum surgery if it is not having too much mobility...the sensitivity can be due to fractired or chipped off tooth structure or exposed gums that can be treated with desensitising paste and restorative materials....the head ache could be bcz of many reasons you are not clear about your head injury...consult a dentist and rule out the deranged occlusion which might be a cause for refered pain in the temple and head region...
i hope my answer will help you...
