    Recently had one of my front teeth knocked loose in sparring. Has this ever happened to anyone else? If so what did you do? Did you have it treated/replaced? How did it pan out for you?

    Never happened to me, but if it does, I'd go to a specialist, that's sure just as it is sure that no treatment could be done to something that is missing, it's to be replaced, but only if you want to. I doubt one would prefer to smile with a missing front tooth or any that is easily noticeable.

    Other experience that may not be the same: I suffered from a deviated septum following a punch and I went under surgery (septoplasty), but didn't want to also have an aesthetic fix. The second time my bone got broken it was all fine by itself, luckily.

    I'd try and get it fixed sooner rather than later. With dental stuff waiting just increases the suffering.

    I had half a tooth knocked out in sparring 48 years ago.
    I wasnt wearing a gum shield and spat the half tooth onto the wooden floor in the ring.
    I got the tooth capped which lasted till Xmas eve 1977.It's replacement has lasted the distance so far.
