Dear Oral Surgeon,

Re: Mr. John Anderson DOB: 03 April 1978

I am writing to request your expertise in assessing and addressing a dental issue presented by Mr. John Anderson, a 51-year-old patient who recently visited Oceanview Dental Care. Mr. Anderson reported a loose front tooth (maxillary central incisor) following a fall during a sports activity, resulting in mild pain and discomfort.

Upon intraoral examination, I observed mobility of the maxillary central incisor with no signs of infection or abscess. Mild gum irritation was noted in the affected area. Given the traumatic injury and the mobility of the tooth, I recommend a comprehensive assessment and potential splinting to stabilize the loose tooth.

Mr. Anderson, a teacher in good overall health, is concerned about the condition of his front tooth and is keen on addressing the issue promptly to avoid further complications. Your expertise as an oral surgeon is highly valuable in ensuring the best possible outcome for his dental health.

I kindly request your assessment and consideration of splinting for Mr. Anderson's condition. Please feel free to contact our clinic if you require any additional information or assistance.

Yours sincerely,
