My son lost 4 teeth to trauma and just got some temporary "flippers" until implants can be placed. We have noticed now that his midline has shifted. Can this be corrected or will he be stuck with it?
Can a Facial/mouth Trauma That Resulted in Evulsion of 4 Front Teeth Result in a Midline Shift?

Unless the trauma resulted in a jaw fracture, the midline did not shift. When the implants are restored this will be corrected
