Impacted Tooth Removal: Continued Orthodontics?
I currently have braces, which were put on as a result of an impacted cuspid (#11). I am 27 years old. The orthodontist thought she would be able to bring the tooth down through chain activation, so I went to an oral surgeon, had bone scraped away, and a chain attached. A year later, the tooth has not moved and my orthodontist is now suggesting that I have an implant following extraction. She further wants me to continue with my orthodontics (pay more money). Should I leave the braces on?
