I have a missing lateral incisor which has been replaced by an adult canine which is located next to the baby canine where it should be. My other teeth are perfectly straight and do not require braces. I have been advised to extract my baby canine and use train track braces (which i wish to replace with smilelign) to move my adult canine to its preferred place and then have a fake tooth put in. Would this work using smilelig clear braces?
Am I eligible for smilelign clear braces?
