Invisalign: Q&AAsk a Question
Has Anyone Had a Lower Front Tooth Extraction to Accomodate Invisalign?
I had a consultation for Invisalign and I have the option of a tooth extraction or filing. I have concerns with filing and how it might impact my teeth down the road, but more so because my orthodontist cannot guarantee I wont need additional measure or regular braces to aide with movement. I was leaning more towards extraction because I feel that if I had one of my lower four front teeth between my canines removed, no one would notice it. Is there anyone who had an extraction? Any advice you have for me? Overjet issues?
Lower incisor extraction is a viable treatment in certain lower crowded situations
In any orthodontic case, the extraction of lower front tooth will give you some symmetry problem.
