Trade-off Between Dental Implant and Braces for Extracted Tooth?
I recently consulted an orthondist who advised me that instead of a dental implant, she can actually use braces to pull my two back teeth forward, thus eliminating the gap where the extraction was. She works with Damon braces and seems to think those would help the case. Is it common to do this? What are the trade-offs betwen braces vs. an implant? I am guessing that my periodontist would vote for implant, but is that just because he makes more money that way?
