Can You Have Braces Fitted when Missing a Front Tooth?
My 15 year old son is in the middle of orthodontic treatment, he has just finished wearing an appliance to move his lower jaw bone and is ready for braces. He had a trauma to his front tooth at age 7 the nerve died 4 years ago and he got root canal treatment. He recently suffered a root fracture to his front tooth, The tooth has to be extracted,the orthodontist told me that he will have no option but to wear a brace with no front tooth. Is there options available to wear a false tooth & braces?
